LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL 



Department of the Corporation Commission, 

Raleigh, December 31, 1913. 
His Excellency, Locke Craig, 

Governor of North Carolina, 

Raleigh, N. C. 

Sir : — We have the honor to submit herewith report of the Corpora- 
tion Commission for the year 1913, this being the fifteenth annual report 
of the Corporation Commission. 

In addition to the freight rates and classification, statistics of opera- 
tion of public-service companies, and other statistical information usu- 
ally carried in the report, we append hereto copy of reports made by 
the Commission to your Excellency, August 5, 1913, and September 19, 
1913, in the matter of adjustment of interstate freight rates, and accom- 
panying memorandum submitted by Committee of Railway Representa- 
tives. Respectfully,

REPORT OF CORPORATION COMMISSION 



GOVERNOR AND COUNCIL OF STATE 

OF NEGOTIATIONS FOR ADJUSTMENT OF 

INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES 

TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 1913 



To His Excellency, Locke Craig, 

Governor of North Carolina, 

and the Council of State. 

We respectfully report to you the result of our conference with the 
interstate carriers, July 22-25, with respect to interstate freight rates; 
and this being our first formal report on the subject, we deem it well 
to briefly review the negotiations which led up to that conference. 

Shortly after the conference between the Legislative Commission and 
the carriers had been declared off by the Legislative Commission, on 
account of a suggestion made at the last of those conferences by the 
Chairman of the Corporation Commission that an adjustment might be 
reached if the representatives of the State and the carriers would sit 
down together and talk over the differences informally and in detail, 
instead of attempting to deal at arms' length, some of the railroad offi- 
cials requested the Corporation Commission to meet with them in that 
manner, expressing the belief that an agreement could be reached that 
would be acceptable as a settlement of the suits which the Corporation 
Commission had brought against them before the Interstate Commerce 
Commission to reduce these rates, and an adjustment of the whole mat- 
ter. 

The Corporation Commission at once advised with his Excellency, the 
Governor, about the matter, desiring not only to settle the matters in- 
volved in the suits it had brought, but to cooperate cordially with him in 
carrying out what he had announced as a policy of his administration. 

We accordingly at once arranged a meeting with the carriers, but noti- 
fied them in the beginning that whatever agreement might be reached 
between them and the Commission would be tentative only, and would 
not be final or binding either as a compromise of our suits or otherwise, 



VI N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

until it was reported to the Governor, and approved by him, after con- 
sultation with such officials and persons as he might think proper to call 
into conference with him. 

We assured the carriers of our willingness to undergo any amount of 
labor to work out a just solution of this important matter, and in con- 
ference after conference we have contended with them, giving careful 
consideration to their views, and earnestly pressing upon them our views 
and the rights of the shippers of North Carolina. 

Progress was made slowly, the carriers making some concessions at 
each conference, having begun with the offer to the Legislative Commis- 
sion as a basis. Finally the Commission told them that unless they could 
make up their minds to offer much more substantial reductions negoti- 
ations would be abandoned as hopeless. This led to a request from the 
presidents of the railway lines for a conference with the Governor and 
the Corporation Commission, which was granted. 

This conference was held in Raleigh July 15th, the Council of State 
joining in the same upon the request of the Governor. 

At this meeting the Corporation Commission, upon request of Presi- 
dent Finley, speaking for the carriers, to suggest some general basis for 
fixing interstate rates, made the following suggestion : 

That through rates into North Carolina be constructed by the use of 
proportional rates south of the Virginia gateways, and that the propor- 
tionals be fixed by applying the Southern Railway Virginia main line 
mileage scale (which was used by the Legislative Commission in making 
its proposition) to the average distances from the Virginia gateways to 
the respective rate zones as they now exist, subject to the condition that 
the reductions resulting to points in North Carolina Rate Zone No. 1 
(called the 61-cent zone) shall be the maximum reduction for other 
zones; except that the reduced rate so made to Statesville should be the 
maximum on western traffic for all points on the Southern Railway main 
line west of Statesville, and that the reduction to no point in the State 
should be less than the reductions made to points in Zone No. 2 (the 
Charlotte zone). 

And further, that upon such important commodities as already had 
car-load ratings up to the Virginia cities, car-load ratings be made south 
of the Virginia cities, to be differentials below the reduced class rates. 

The Commission stated, however, that in making this suggestion they 
did not wish to be understood as believing that it would result in as 
much reduction in the rates as the State was justly entitled to, but was 
in the nature of a concession made in a spirit of compromise. 

The railway presidents then expressed strong belief that a settlement 
could be reached on this basis, and asked for another meeting between 



INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES. Vll 

the traffic managers and the Corporation Commission. This course be- 
ing approved by the Governor and Council of State, the Commission 
met the traffic managers at Old Point on July 22d ? and were in session 
four days. 

We submit to you below the result of that meeting : 

The Commission first took up the adjustment of Western rates, and com- 
menced with this by attempting to agree upon the rates to the points in what 
was termed Zone No. 1, this being the largest and most representative rate 
zone in the State. The existing rates to most other parts of the State are 
made with relation to these. It was, therefore, thought that rates being once 
fixed to this zone, the rates to all other parts of the State could easily be 
adjusted to conform relatively to them. 

GREENSBORO— ZONE No. 1. 

This zone embraces all points on the main line of the Southern Railway 
from Winston- Salem to Goldsboro, inclusive, and from points on the Southern 
Railway from Greensboro to Ellisboro, inclusive. All points on the Seaboard 
Air Line Railway from Littleton to Cary, inclusive, and from Henderson to 
Durham, including Oxford ; also its branch line to Louisburg. All points on 
the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad from Ruggles to Goldsboro, inclusive, and 
from Contentnea to Smithfield, inclusive ; on its branch line from Halifax to 
Kinston, inclusive, and on its branch line from Rocky Mount to Spring Hope, 
inclusive. Also from Rocky Mount to Hobgood, inclusive, except Tarboro. 
On the Williamston branch from Mildred to Everetts, inclusive. On the 
Washington branch from Parmele to Grimes, inclusive. Points on the East 
Carolina Railway between Henrietta and Farmville, inclusive. Points on the 
Norfolk Southern Railroad from Grimesland to Raleigh, inclusive. All points 
on the Norfolk Southern Railroad, Goldsboro to New Bern, and points be- 
tween New Bern and Washington, exclusive of New Bern and Washington. 

The average distance from the Virginia cities to all points in this zone is 
189 miles, and the existing rates from all Virginia cities are the same to all 
points in this zone, and are as follows

Upon the basis suggested by the Commission (as slightly modified) the pro- 
portional rates from all the Virginia cities to all points in this zone, to be used 
in making through rates, would be as follows

After prolonged negotiations and several different offers, which were de- 
clined by the Commission, the carriers offered as their final figures, beyond

The final offer of the carriers would result in total through rates from Cin- 
cinnati, Ohio, and Louisville, Ky., to all points in this zone, compared with 
existing total through rates, as follows :

Reductions. 11 886642344558 5 6 6 2 2 

All rates from the West to North Carolina territory are based upon the 
rates from Ohio River Crossings, the principal ones of which as affecting our 
territory are Cincinnati, Ohio, and Louisville, Ky. It, therefore, follows that 
when the rates are fixed from Cincinnati and Louisville this automatically 
fixes the rates from all western territory beyond these points. It was clearly 
understood between the Commission and the carriers that the present method 
of constructing rates from western territory beyond Cincinnati and Louisville 
should be continued, and that rates from Memphis, St. Louis, and Nashville 
be revised so as to preserve present relationship. 

It will be noted that the reductions proposed are relatively greater on the 
lower classes than on first and second class. 

The following table will show the reductions which the proportionals sug- 
gested by the Commission would make under the local rates from Virginia 
cities, both in cents per one hundred pounds and in percentages.

INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES. IX 

The fact that the greater reductions offered are in the lower classes is to 
the advantage of the State, because of the fact that nearly all of the traffic 
from the West is moved under the lower classes, and very little of it is moved 
under the higher classes. To illustrate the practical effect of the proposed 
reductions, we mention some of the principal commodities which are moved 
in large quantities from the West, the class under which they move, and 
what the proposed reductions would amount to per car-load : 

Hay moves less than car-load under fifth class, and the reduction being 6 
cents per hundred pounds, would amount to $1.20 per ton. In car-loads it 
moves at grain rate, the minimum weight being 24,000 pounds ; the reduction 
of 5 cents per hundred pounds would save on a car-load $12. 

Grain and grain products, other than flour, move under Class D, less than 
car-loads, on which there is a reduction of 4 cents per hundred pounds, or 
22.20 per cent lower than the existing local rate. The special car-load rate 
proposed is a reduction of 5 cents per hundred pounds from existing local 
from Virginia cities, which is 28 per cent. On a car-load, the minimum weight 
being 40,000 pounds, would save $20 per car. 

Flour, in sacks, less than car-load, moves under Class C, on which there is 
a reduction of 4 cents per hundred pounds, or 19 per cent, and in barrels less 
than car-load it moves under Class F, the existing rate being 42 cents per 
barrel. The proposed reduction is 8 cents per barrel, or 19 per cent. Car- 
loads it moves under the special proposed car-load rating, which is a reduc- 
tion of 6 cents per hundred pounds, which is 28.60 per cent. On a car-load, 
minimum weight 40,000 pounds, would save $24 per car. 

Canned goods of the following description, namely, fruit and vegetables, in- 
cluding beans with pork, corn, tomatoes, peas, etc, in car-loads move under 
fifth class. The reduction on this is 6 cents per hundred pounds from the 
existing local rate of 28 cents per hundred pounds, being 21.40 per cent. On 
a car-load of 36,000 pounds minimum would save $21.60 per car. 

Fresh meats of all kinds move under fourth class. The reduction proposed 
of 6 cents per hundred pounds from the existing local rate of 32 cents per 
hundred pounds, being 19 per cent, would save on a car-load, minimum weight 
20,000 pounds, $12 jper car. 

Agricultural implements : This class covers the general run of agricultural 
implements and machinery, such as disc harrows, harrows, manure spread- 
ers, mowers, mowing and reaping machines, planters, plows, plow bases, 
plow handles, single-trees, binders, pruners, rakes, scythes, etc. These move 
in car-load lots under sixth class, upon which there is a proposed reduction of 
4 cents per hundred pounds from the existing local of 21 cents, being 19 per 
cent. This reduction on a car-load, minimum weight 20,000 pounds, would 
save $8 per car. Most of the agricultural implements in less than car-load 
quantities move either under third or fourth class, the reduction on third class 
being 8 cents per hundred pounds and on fourth class 6 cents per hundred 
pounds, amounting in each instance to about 19 per cent. 

Wire fencing in less than car-load lots moves under fifth class, on which 
there is a proposed reduction of 6 cents per hundred pounds from the exist- 
ing local of 28 cents, being 21.40 per cent. In car-loads it moves under sixth 
class, on which there is a proposed reduction of 4 cents per hundred pounds 
from the existing local of 21 cents. This would result in a reduction on a 
car-load, minimum weight 30,000 pounds, of $12. 



X N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION". 

The comparison below will show the effect of the proposed reductions upon 
the North Carolina merchant and jobber in his competition with merchants 
and jobbers of the Virginia cities in North Carolina territory. The rates from 
Cincinnati and Louisville to North Carolina territory are made by the use of 
proportional rates from Cincinnati and Louisville to the Virginia cities, then 
there is added to this proportional the rate from Virginia cities to the North 
Carolina points. These proportionals are as shown in the first line of the 
table below, and by adding to them the proposed proportionals south of Vir- 
ginia cities, shown in the second line of this table, we get the total rates 
which the North Carolina shipper must pay on goods from Cincinnati and 
Louisville to points in Zone No. 1 : 

Grain. Flour. Pota's. Special Iron.

New rate... 82 71 56 41 34 27 25 34 28 25 37 39 56 24 26 25 26 

The Virginia cities merchants and jobbers on goods shipped from Cincinnati 
and Louisville to the Virginia cities to be distributed to North Carolina must 
pay a higher rate up to the Virginia cities than is charged on shipments 
through to North Carolina, and in addition to that would have to pay the full 
local rate from the Virginia cities to the North Carolina points. The follow- 
ing table shows, in the first line, the rates from Cincinnati and Louisville to 
the Virginia cities proper, which the Virginia cities merchant must pay, and 
in the second line the local which he must pay to the North Carolina points 
in Zone No. 1, and the third line the total cost to the Virginia merchant to 
reach North Carolina points when distributing from the Virginia cities proper :

61 51 42 32 28 21 

123 104* 82| 59| 51 39| 

The difference, therefore, in favor of the North Carolina shipper is as 
shown in the table below : 

1 2 3 4 5 6

82 71 56 41 34 27 

41 33* 26| 18| 17 12* 

It will be seen that the difference in favor of the North Carolina shipper is 
such that he can ship back to territory around him under the North Carolina 
scale to distances ranging from 40 to 60 miles before meeting the rates which 
the Virginia cities man has to pay. 

This advantage to the North Carolina merchant applies to this extent only 
in respect to shipments originating at Cincinnati and Louisville and other 
Ohio River Crossings. The difference is not so great in his favor on ship- 
ments from points beyond Cincinnati and Louisville, for the reason that on 
such shipments the proportional rate in our favor as against the Virginia 
cities of 30 cents less than the rate to Virginia cities proper is reduced to a 
differential in our favor of only 5 cents per one hundred pounds at Chicago. 



INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES. XI 

For instance, on shipments from Chicago territory the rates to Virginia cities, 
together with the local thence to North Carolina points, are as follows :

Note. — These comparisons are made only upon the six numbered classes, for 
the reason that shipments from Chicago to Virginia cities are covered by offi- 
cial classification, which carries only the six numbered classes. 

CHARLOTTE— ZONE No. 2. 

This zone includes all territory on the Southern Railway main line from 
Lexington to Charlotte, including all points between Salisbury and States- 
ville, all points on the Mooresville branch between Winston- Salem and Char- 
lotte, exclusive of Winston- Salem. On its branch line from High Point to 
Ashboro, not including High Point; all points on the Greensboro-Sanford 
branch ; all points Climax to Ramseur, and Salisbury to Norwood. All points 
on the Winston-Salem Southbound between Winston-Salem and Wadesboro, 
not including Winston-Salem. All points on the Seaboard Air Line from Apex 
to Charlotte via Hamlet and Monroe, inclusive ; its branch line from Moncure 
to Pittsboro. All points on the Randolph and Cumberland from Cameron to 
Carthage. All points on the Atlantic Coast Line from Goldsboro to Wrights- 
boro, not including Goldsboro ; on its branch line Warsaw to Clinton ; on its 
main line from Four Oaks to Fayetteville, inclusive ; on its line from Fayette- 
ville to Sanford. All points on the Raleigh, Charlotte and Southern from 
Ashboro to Aberdeen, including Mount Gilead branch and its line from Colon 
to Star. 

The average distance to all points in this zone is 235 miles. 

The Commission suggested that through rates to this zone be constructed 
by the use of proportionals from the Virginia cities, which should be less than 
the existing local rates to the following extent :

the Virginia and Carolina Southern north of Lumberton, and all points on the 
Aberdeen and Rockfish Railroad. 

The Commission deeming the existing rates to this zone as relatively higher 
than the existing rates to the two preceding zones, asked for greater reduc- 
tions to all points in it than had been suggested to Zones 1 and 2, in order to 
put the same in proper relation with them. The carriers, however, were very 
firmly opposed to granting any greater reductions to this territory than the 
same reductions in each class as should be given to Zone No. 2. 

The existing rates to this zone from the Virginia cities are as follows :

Existing rates to Gastonia are higher than Gibson 1 cent in fifth class and 
2 cents each in Classes C and D, and reductions were made so as to make the 
proposed new rates the same. 

The carriers declined to make greater reductions in these zones, because it 
would make such abrupt differences between points in it and points just 
across the line in South Carolina. 

WEST OF STATESVILLE. 

The Commission suggested that on western traffic the new rates to States- 
ville be the maxima for all main line points west of Statesville, for the reason 
that these points all being nearer to Cincinnati and Louisville, on the same 
line of railroad, than Statesville, ought not to pay any higher rate. 

The Commission also intended this to apply to Lincolnton, Shelby, and 
Rutherfordton, and all intermediate points. • 

If this suggestion had been followed it would have resulted in very large 
reductions, greater than in any other part of the State, as the present rates 
to this territory are relatively very high. For example, the reduction to 
Marion, which is the highest rate point, under the proposal of the Commission 
would have been :

To compensate in some degree for the refusal to grant the reduction asked, 
they offered a quite advantageous list of commodity rates, lower than the 
class rates, which is attached to the report of the carriers, which accompanies 
our report. 

The reasons assigned by the carriers for not granting greater reductions to 
Asheville were that the rates proposed are lower than the rates from Cincin- 
nati to Atlanta, Asheville being 439 miles and Atlanta 487 miles from Cincin- 
nati ; and also that further reductions would compel great reductions in rates 
on the Southern lines into Tennessee and South Carolina. 

We find that some of the proposed class and commodity rates are above and 
some below Atlanta rates, the difference not being great; the comparison of 
class rates being as follows :

XVI W. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

WILMINGTON AND OTHER POINTS. 

The Commission urged reductions to Wilmington and other water com- 
petitive points on the coast of North Carolina — not to the same extent, but 
with some relation to the reductions to inland points, in order to measurably 
preserve present relations ; but the carriers declined to make any reductions 
to these points. 

Wilmington rates from Cincinnati and Louisville, on account of water com- 
petition, are lower than to other parts of the State, and are as follows : 

1 2 3 4 5 6 A 

82 68 53 41 32 25 19 

With car-load rate on grain and flour of 20 cents. 
The following rates were suggested : 



With the understanding that relative reductions also be made to the other 
water points, viz". : Morehead City, Beaufort, New Bern, Washington, Ply- 
mouth, Edenton, and Elizabeth City. 

These points now have rates from Virginia cities, beginning with first class : 
Morehead City and Beaufort, 53 cents ; New Bern, 46 cents ; Washington, 45 
cents ; Plymouth, 45 cents ; Edenton, 38 cents ; Elizabeth City, 30 cents ; the 
last two being from Norfolk only. 

POINTS BETWEEN ZONE No. 1 AND VIRGINIA LINE. 

Much controversy was had over rates from points between Zone No. 1 and 
the Virginia line, they never having been treated on the same zone basis. 

These include points on Southern Railway between Greensboro and the 
State line, including Reidsville ; points on the Atlantic Coast Line and Sea- 
board Air Line Railways from Weldon to State line, inclusive ; points on Sea- 
board Air Line Railway from Boykin, Va., to Lewiston ; points on the Atlantic 
Coast Line Railroad from Hobgood to Virginia State line, and points on the 
Norfolk Southern from Washington to Virginia State line ; and on the Norfolk 
and Western between Winston- Salem and the Virginia State line, and Durham 
and the Virginia line. 

"This territory generally has rates beginning at 55 cents first class to points 
nearest to Zone No. 1 (which has a 61 cents rate) and scaling down slightly 
to points near the Virginia line. 

The Commission contended that the rates in all this territory be so reduced 
that they would be the same percentage of the proposed new rates that they 
are of existing rates, which would put the 55 cents points down to 45 cents 
and proportionately reduce the others. 

The carriers were firm in their refusal to do this, and would only agree to 
so reduce them that the rates to no point in this territory should be higher 
than rates to Zone No. 1, which has the effect of putting rates to 55 cents 
points, such as Weldon and Lewiston, and 52 cents points, such as Reidsville 
and Rich Square, on 50 cents basis, the same as proposed to Zone No. 1, 
resulting in relatively much smaller reductions to this territory than to other 
parts of the State. 



INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES. XV11 

The view of the Commission was that these points, on account of their 
closer proximity to the Virginia cities, were entitled to have lower rates from 
them than Zone No. 1, as they have always had. 

NORTHERN AND EASTERN RATES. 

The Commission suggested adjustment of these rates by use of proportionals 
south of Virginia cities in the same manner as was proposed as to western 
rates. 

The carriers, however, would not seriously entertain this, for the reason, 
as claimed by them, that it would destroy the relation of rates as between 
the markets north of us, and cited as illustrative of this that it would make 
the difference in rates from Baltimore to North Carolina points and from 
Richmond to the same points only 5 cents, which would afford just ground 
of complaint to Richmond. 

The carriers proposed to observe combinations of current locals on Nor- 
folk, Richmond, Lynchburg, and Roanoke, and to observe combination of all- 
rail rates from interior points, and assert that this would result in substan- 
tial relief on important commodities, as partially illustrated in their report, 
herewith sent, page xxix. 

BUFFALO-PITTSBURG DISTRICT. 

The Commission suggested that rates from Buffalo-Pittsburg District be 
also adjusted by the use of proportionals south of Virginia cities, as had been 
suggested as to western rates. The carriers, however, declared that they 
were not then prepared to deal with that question : 

1. Because they did not have with them tariffs which would enable them 
to determine the effect of that basis ; and 

2. Because they could not determine that question without consulting their 
eastern connections, opportunity for which had not been had. 

They agreed, however, to take the suggestion under consideration, express- 
ing a belief, however, that that method of adjustment would be impracticable. 

SOUTHERN RATES. 

The carriers agreed to undertake the revision of rates on bananas in car- 
loads to North Carolina territory, involving reductions to representative points 
as follows : 

Raleigh 11 cents per cwt. 

Greensboro 11 cents per cwt. 

Salisbury 12 cents per cwt. 

Charlotte 13 cents per cwt. 

Asheville 13 cents per cwt. 

Other adjustments were taken up and discussed, but no conclusion made in 
respect to them, particularly a desired reduction in the coal rates to North 
Carolina. 

After failure of the carriers and the Commission to reach an entire agree- 
ment in respect to western rates, it seemed difficult to enter earnestly into 
consideration about other matters. With the western rates once agreed upon, 
it is our opinion that other matters can be taken up much more successfully, 



XV111 N. C CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

and that an agreement upon the first important matter of difference would be 
a strong inducement towards the settlement of others. 

It was understood that in the event of an adjustment of rates, the rates 
on all branch lines and to all points not herein mentioned should be so revised 
that they would bear the same relation to the proposed new rates that they 
do to the existing rates. 

It was further understood that the proposed adjustment should not have 
the effect of raising any rates at any points which are now lower than this 
adjustment, this agreement having special reference to Fayetteville. 

CONCLUSION. 

The Corporation Commission makes no recommendation in respect to 
the matters set out in this report, for the reason that it has not itself 
reached a conclusion about the matter, and does not desire to do so until 
it has had the advantage of consultation with the Governor, the Council 
of State, the Legislative Commission, and such other persons and organi- 
zations as the Governor may think proper to call into conference upon 
the matter, and for the further reason that the Commission deems it de- 
sirable that whatever conclusion may be reached upon the matter shall 
be, if possible, harmonious. 

The Commission had with it in this conference the assistance and ad- 
vice of Mr. J. L. Graham, of Winston-Salem, N". C, regarded by us as 
one of the ablest and most experienced rate experts in the State not asso- 
ciated with the railroads. His services were of great value to us. 

We herewith hand you the detailed report of the negotiations sub- 
mitted by the carriers. Respectfully submitted, 

E. L. Travis, Chairman ; 
W. T. Lee, Commissioner; 
George P. Pell, Commissioner.

This conference was held in pursuance of suggestion made by the Railway 
Executives in conference with Governor Craig, members of the North Carolina 
Corporation Commission, and Council of State, in Raleigh, N. C, July 15, 1918, 
as follows : 

Mr. FINLEY : "I suggest, having in mind, and I am sure the other officers 
here of the other railroads feel that way about it, that we have reached a point 
from which I think we can take hold of this question again. I think we are 
getting to look at this question somewhat alike in the way of an adjustment. 
The best thing to do now is for the committee, the representatives of the State, 
to meet with the railroads and see what they can work out now from what has 
been discussed, what has been submitted, and with the assurance that they will 
do that — that something shall be done in a short time. If the Commissioners 
and the Traffic Officers of the railways are not able to agree, the Executive 
Officers will again meet here. I make this suggestion because I think it is the 
best way to get results. I think the Traffic Officers should get together very 
promptly." 

The matter that had been "submitted" was a basis .proposed by the North 
Carolina Corporation Commission for the construction of rates from the West 
to North Carolina points, namely : 

That said rates be made by the use of proportional rates south of Virginia 
gateways, applying Southern Railway Virginia main-line mileage scale for the 
average distances from the Virginia gateways to the respective North Carolina 
rate zones as they now exist, subject to the condition that the reductions re- 
sulting to points in North Carolina Rate Zone No. 1 (the zone to which the 
scale of local rates from Virginia cities, beginning with 61 cents, first class, 



XX 1ST. C CORPORATION COMMISSION". 

now applies), shall be the maximum reduction for other North Carolina rate 
zones ; except that the reduced rates to Statesville, N. C, should be the maxi- 
mum for points on Southern Railway main line west of Statesville, and that 
no reduction to any point in the State should be less than the reduction made 
to points in Zone No. 2, Charlotte, etc. 

A suggestion was also made by the Commission at the conference in Raleigh, 
July 15th, that commodity rates should be established on important articles 
in car-load lots, differentials below the reduced class rates, but no definite 
suggestion was made at the Raleigh conference as to the measure of these 
differentials. 

At the present conference at Old Point, July 22-25th, the Commission pro- 
posed that as to grain and grain products, car-load rates should be made 2 
cents per hundred pounds lower than the reduced rates on Classes C, D, and 
F, respectively, and that a commodity rate be also established on potatoes in 
car-loads a differential below the reduced class rate. 

The special iron rates included in this memorandum, except those to Ashe- 
ville and other western North Carolina points, were not a subject of discus- 
sion at the conferences. They were inserted in response to a request of the 
Commission just prior to adjournment, and the reductions shown are the sug- 
gestion of the carriers : 

Predicated on the basis outlined by the Commission, rates from Cincinnati 
and Louisville to representative points in North Carolina would be reduced 
as follows :

modified, the carriers were asked to make the following reductions :

the Commission without recommendation if the sixth class and Class B were 
reduced 2 cents respectively.

Which the carriers advised they could not accept. 
MARION— GROUP No. 5. 

States ville, N. C, is in Zone No. 2, and the observance of reduced rates to 
that point as maxima to points in the western part of the State would have 
caused such extraordinary reductions that the carriers were compelled to 
decline the observance of Statesville rates as maxima to territory west thereof, 
and in lieu of this basis suggested the observance of reduced rates to Marion 
as maxima as hereinafter explained. 



XXIV N. C CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

To illustrate the effect of the application of the reduced Statesville rates 
resulting from the carriers' final suggestion as maxima to points west of 
Statesville, the rates to Marion would have been reduced to the following 
extent : 

Grain. Flour. Potatoes. Special Iron.

The adoption of which would have caused the following reductions :

C.L. C.L. C.L. C.L. L.C.L.

Which reductions the carriers deemed excessive and declined to accept. 

Since conference, Southern Railway is in receipt of a letter from Commis- 
sioner W. T. Lee, from which the following is quoted : 

"I would suggest that you start Marion at $1.05 and Waynesville and Hen- 
dersonville at $1.05. You will note this will make the same reduction in cents 
per hundred pounds as to the Greensboro Zone." 

Assuming that Commissioner Lee intended to suggest that reductions be 
made to Marion, Waynesville, and Hendersonville on each class the same as 
to points in the Greensboro Zone, said reductions would be as follows : 

Grain. Flour. Potatoes. Special Iron.

INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES. XXV 

Railway between Marion and Asheville, and that the Marion rates were also 
intended to apply to Shelby, Rutherfordton, Morganton, Hendersonville, and 
Waynesville and as maxima to destinations intermediate thereto, involving 
substantial reductions to all of said intermediate stations. 

The suggestion just received from Commissioner Lee, if correctly interpreted, 
would involve some advances as well as some reductions from the figures pro- 
posed by the carriers. The reductions proposed by Commissioner Lee on Class 
D and on grain, car-loads, would be most serious, and cause the adoption of a 
lower rate on Class D and on grain, in car-loads, to Marion than to Hope Mills, 
Gibson, Gastonia, Hickory, or Lincolnton. 

The Seaboard Air Line could not maintain lower rates to Shelby and Ruth- 
erfordton than to Lincolnton and intermediate points via its route. There- 
fore, if suggestions now made by Commissioner Lee are adopted as to Marion, 
the Seaboard will have to abandon its policy of maintaining rates to Shelby 
and Rutherfordton on the Marion basis, or reduce its Lincolnton rates below 
the Hickory basis, which it now maintains. 

In view of these facts, and in view of the most substantial concessions 
involved in the carriers' final figures, it appears to the carriers that they 
should not be expected to make further sacrifice at Marion and points west 
thereof. 

SHELBY AND RUTHERFORDTON— ZONE No. 5. 

In both the initial and final suggestions of the carriers, Shelby and Ruther- 
fordton were grouped with Marion, and reductions involved in the final sug- 
gestion of the carriers to these points were as follows :

and an increase of 1 cent on Class D and of 2 cents on Class F over the present 
figures. 

The adoption of the Commission's proposal to Wayuesville would cause the 
following reductions : 

Grain. Flour. Potatoes. Special Iron. 
F C.L. C.L. C.L. C.L. L.C.L.

The carriers did not feel that they could fairly be asked to make such heavy 
reductions as those proposed by the Commission. 

Note comment above under Marion with respect to Commissioner Lee's pro- 
posal as to Wayuesville and Hendersonville. 

ASHEVILLE— GROUP No. 6. 

In addition to the reduction in car-load commodity rates from Cincinnati 
and Louisville to Asheville, hereinafter set out, the carriers first proposed to 
reduce the class rates to Asheville to the following extent :

Inasmuch as the Asheville rates are now on a very low basis, and in view 
of the substantial concessions already suggested by the carriers as to the class 
rates and as to important car-load commodities, set out below, it is the belief 
of the carriers that the Commission will not insist on any further sacrifice in 
the Asheville territory. 

Following is a statement of present rates to Asheville and those finally pro- 
posed by the carriers, on both classes and car-load commodities, which we trust 
will find acceptance :

It is understood that in the event a revision is made of the rates from Cin- 
cinnati and Louisville to points in North Carolina, like revision will be made 
from other Ohio River Crossings, and St. Louis, Memphis, and Nashville, so 
as to preserve the existing relationship. 

It is the intent of the carriers, in the event of an agreement with the State 
and subsequent adoption of the rates herein suggested by them, under the 
approval of the Interstate Commerce Commission, to so revise rates to points 
on branch lines, not hereinbefore referred to, as to substantially preserve 
present relationships. 

It is proposed by the carriers that as to points intermediate from the West, 
via the direct routes through Virginia cities, to observe the revised rates to 
points in Zone No. 1 as maxima to intermediate destinations. 

The Commission proposed that to points in North Carolina north of the 
northern boundary of Zone No. 1 reductions be made in rates from the West 
the same in percentage as to points in Zone No. 1. 

This proposal was not accepted by the carriers, because of their feeling that 
Fourth Section observance will result in substantial reductions to points inter- 
mediate to Zone No. 1, and that even observing Zone No. 1 figures as maxima 
involves some intermediate Virginia destinations. 



INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES. XXIX 

WILMINGTON, N. C. 

To Wilmington and other water competitive points on the coast of North 
Carolina the Commission suggested reductions — not to the same extent, but 
with some relation to reductions to inland points. 

The following tentative reductions to Wilmington were discussed, viz. :

No agreement could be reached, because the carriers believe that no reduc- 
tions to these water competitive points below the necessity of competition can 
possibly be justified. 

Note. — The commodity rates herein proposed on "potatoes, C. L.," will apply 
on the following description : 

"Vegetables, viz. : Apples, pears, beets, cabbage, onions, turnips, and pota- 
toes, straight or mixed C. L. (potatoes, in straight C. L., min. wt. May 1st to 
October 31st, inclusive, 24,000 pounds, and from November 1st to April 30th, 
inclusive, 30,000 pounds)." 

Note. — The carriers will undertake a revision of rates on bananas, in car- 
loads, from Mobile to North Carolina destinations, involving reductions to 
representative points as follows : Raleigh and Greensboro, 11 cents ; Salisbury, 
12 cents ; Charlotte, 13 cents ; and Asheville, 13 cents per hundred pounds. 

RATES FROM THE EASTERN SEABOARD TERRITORY TO POINTS 
IN NORTH CAROLINA. 

(This heading is intended to embrace all the territory lying in and east of 
the Buffalo-Pittsburg Zone.) 

At a conference with the North Carolina Commission at Old Point Comfort, 
June 24, 1913, representatives of the railways submitted a memorandum to 
the Commission, a paragraph of which reads as follows : 

"After conference with representatives of the B. and O., Pennsylvania, and 
Reading Railway, we are prepared to say that those lines will concur with 
their southern connections in the revision of rates via all-rail from points on 
those lines to points in North Carolina, observing combinations of current 
locals on Norfolk, Richmond, Lynchburg, and Roanoke as maxima." 

Combinations of locals do not affect current class rates except via all-rail 
from New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore. The lower water and rail rates 
attract practically all of the business from these ports to North Carolina desti- 
nations, and therefore 'the question of all-rail combinations as to class rates 
from the ports to North Carolina points is of small consequence. 

Nevertheless, it is the purpose of the carriers, in the event of agreement with 
the Commission, to observe these combinations as maxima. 

The observance of combination via all-rail from interior points will, the 
carriers believe, be of substantial value, particularly as to some of the leading 
commodities moving in car-loads, as illustrative of which attention is directed 
to the following : 

The rate on molasses and glucose in car-loads from New York and Phila- 
delphia, all-rail, to North Carolina destinations, will be reduced in amounts 
ranging from iy 2 cents in some cases, to as much as 5% cents in others. 



XXX N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

Hardware, N. O. S., as per Official Classification, from Boston and points 
taking Boston rates, will be reduced to the principal destinations in North 
Carolina 7 cents per hundred pounds. 

Glass bottles, fruit jars, and glassware, N. O. S., in car-loads, from some of 
the actual shipping points in the interior east, will be reduced in sums ranging 
from y 2 cent to 11 cents per hundred pounds. 

Crackers, car-load, from New York and Philadelphia to the principal desti- 
nations in North Carolina, 4 cents. 

Canned goods, from New York and Philadelphia, reductions ranging from 
4 to 6 cents. 

Roofing paper from York, Pa., 1% cents, and from Downington, Pa., 4 cents. 

Tin cans from Baltimore, 2 cents. 

Petroleum and its products from Marcus Hook, Pa., reductions ranging from 
iy 2 to 4% cents. 

Soap from New York and Philadelphia, and bicarbonate of soda from Syra- 
cuse, N. Y., reductions ranging from 3 to 5 cents. 

Strawboard from Pencoyd, Pa., 2 cents. 

These are merely illustrative, and do not embrace the entire range of 
changes that will result from the adoption of this basis. 

It is not to be understood that every rate to every destination from these 
or other shipping points is affected, even on the commodities named, by the 
combination of locals. 

Lack of time and of opportunity to discuss these matters with eastern con- 
nections does not permit us at the moment to go into more detail, but it is 
understood that in the event of agreement with the Commission, the carriers 
will proceed with all reasonable dispatch to bring to a conclusion with the 
eastern connections this question of interior eastern rate adjustment. 

During the closing hours of the present conference, the Commission sug- 
gested to the carriers the application south of Virginia cities of proportional 
rates for the construction of totals from points in the Eastern Seaboard, terri- 
tory to North Carolina destinations, the same as those to be used in the con- 
struction of revised rates from Ohio River Crossings. 

The basis of rates the carriers believe to be altogether impracticable, for 
reasons set out in the memorandum submitted by the carriers at conference in 
Raleigh. April 26, 1913. The suggestion of the Commission was, therefore, 
respectfully declined. 

It was thereupon suggested by the Commission that the carriers use this 
basis in the construction of rates from points in the Buffalo-Pittsburg Zone, 
but the carriers were not then prepared to deal with that question, first, be- 
cause they did not have with them tariffs which would enable them to deter- 
mine the effect of the application of the basis, and, second, because they could 
not determine that question without consulting their eastern connections, 
opportunity for which has not yet been had. 

The carriers, however, agreed to take that suggestion under consideration, 
and to advise what, if anything, could be done with it. 

There has not yet been time for a thorough analysis of the question or for 
any discussion with initial carriers, but we now express the belief that the 
application of proportional fates on business from points in the Buffalo -Pitts- 
burg Zone, the same as those used on business from the Ohio River Crossings, 
is impracticable.

INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES. XXXI 

The present rates are lower than combination of locals to the following 
extent : 

1 2 

Buffalo 11 9 

Pittsburg..... 8 8 

The question of these rates depends so much upon the position of the initial 
carriers that the representatives of the North Carolina lines are unable at the 
moment to advise what, if anything, can be clone looking to the modification 
of the existing total class rates from the Buffalo-Pittsburg Zone. It is under- 
stood, of course, that in so far as rates may be affected by combination of 
locals, the revision will be made. 

The revision of rates herein presented by the carriers is proposed in the 
spirit enunciated in memorandum presented by representatives of the carriers 
to representatives of the State in conference at Raleigh, February 26, 1913, and 
subject to the conditions set out in said memorandum, and with the further 
understanding, as agreed upon with the North Carolina Commission, that an 
agreement between the Commission and the carriers, approved by the Gov- 
ernor, settles all pending differences between the State of North Carolina and 
the railways with respect to rates on interstate traffic involved in the various 
conferences between representatives of the railways and representatives of 
the State. ' 

JThis memorandum is prepared in pursuance of understanding reached just 
before adjournment of the conference, that it would be furnished the Commis- 
sion and submitted by it to the Governor, and that the undersigned would be 
notified as to any conclusion reached by the Governor and the members of the 
Commission. 

It was also understood that in the event the rates now suggested by the 
carriers are not accepted by the State, there is to be another conference 
between the Governor, the Commission, and the executives of the railways.

REPORT OF CORPORATION COMMISSION 

TO THE 

GOVERNOR 

OF NEGOTIATIONS FOR ADJUSTMENT OF 

INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES 

SEPTEMBER 19. 1913 



To His Excellency, Locke Craig, 

Governor of North Carolina: 

Pursuant to conclusion reached after advising with your Excellency, 
the Corporation Commission resumed- negotiations with the railways for 
further reductions in interstate freight rates in Washington on Septem- 
ber 10th. The negotiations extended through three days, the Commis- 
sion during that time treating with both the traffic managers and the 
presidents of the roads. 

As the result of these negotiations the railroads have submitted an 
amended proposition, which we herewith submit for your consideration. 

The amended proposition makes no change in the reductions hereto- 
fore offered on western traffic to zones one, two, and three, except to in- 
crease the reduction one cent per hundred pounds on class A, in order 
to make that proportionate to the other classes. 

The main defect in the former proposition, in our view, was that it 
did not offer relatively equal reductions to all parts of the State. 

It did not offer any reductions to water points, and the reductions to 
points between zone one and the Virginia border, to points west of 
Statesville, and to Gastonia were too small as compared to the reduc- 
tions in zones one and two. 

The amended proposition offers increased reductions to all of these 
points except water points. 

POINTS ON NORTHERN BORDER. 

In respect to the points near the Virginia border north and east of 
zone one, the reductions now offered to them are proportionate to those 
offered to zones one and two. 



XXXVI N. C. COEPOKATION" COMMISSION. 

Following this basis the proportional rates from Virginia cities on 
western traffic were made as follows : 

TO WELDON. 

Grain. Flour. Potatoes.

Reductions 10 7755323222 3 4 2 

These same rates to apply to Roanoke Rapids, and be maxima to all 
points on Atlantic Coast Line and Seaboard Air Line north of Weldon ; 
to apply to Lewiston and be maxima to all points on the Lewiston branch 
of the Seaboard Air Line; to apply via Norfolk to Tarboro, and be 
maxima to all stations east of Tarboro on the Atlantic Coast Line; to 
points on Norfolk Sonthern Railroad taking 55-cent rate first class, 
or less, except such as already have 45-cent rate, or less; to Reids- 
ville, via Lynchburg, and the maxima to all points north on the Southern 
Railway. The rates to all points on the Norfolk and Western Railway 
between Winston-Salem and Roanoke and Durham and Lynchburg are 
fixed practically on the same basis, resulting in rates to Madison and 
Roxboro slightly lower than the Weldon rates except on first class. 

GASTONIA. 

The reductions now offered to Gastonia are as follows :

These are not as great as to zone two, but nearly so. 
WEST OF STATESVILLE. 

The reductions to this territory in the former proposal were less than 
to zones one and two. 

We have contended that the rates to this territory from the west being 
unjustly higher than to other parts of the State, ought to be reduced 
more, so as to bring about a more nearly equitable relation. 

They now propose to reduce the rates from Cincinnati, Ohio, and 
Louisville, Ky., and related points as follows :

INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES. XXXV11 

These rates to be maxima to all stations west of Hickory. This results 
in reductions to Morganton, Marion, Kutherfordton, Shelby, Waynes- 
ville, Hendersonville and intermediate points (except Asheville) approxi- 
mately as follows, which are greater than to other parts of the State : 

12 3 4 5 6 

15 12 9 7 5 6 

BUFFALO-PITTSBURG ZONE. 

In the former proposal no reductions had been definitely agreed upon 
from this territory. We regarded this an important omission because of 
the fact that the principal producing points of many of the most impor- 
tant and commonly used iron and steel products are in this zone, and the 
fact that the prices of many of them in all parts of the country are fixed 
at Pittsburg prices plus the freight. 

The carriers now offer commodity rates from this territory on practi- 
cally all the important iron and steel articles produced in it, both in car- 
load and less than car-load, which are the same as would result from the 
application of the proportionals offered on western rates and are sub- 
stantial and beneficial reductions. 

These commodity rates cover nails, horseshoes, bar iron, structural 
iron, bolts and nuts, plow bases and plow parts, cotton ties, wire fencing, 
sheet-iron roofing, roofing tin, and a great many other extensively used 
iron and steel articles. 

In addition to this, the carriers are negotiating with their northern 
connections for a readjustment of the all-rail rates from this territory, 
as set out in their offer, which, if successful, will result in very gratify- 
ing reductions in the all-rail class rates. They showed us their working 
sheets in this matter, and we were agreeably surprised to see the amount 
of work they had already done toward this adjustment. 

RATES FROM EASTERN TERRITORY. 

The carriers propose to make such revision of all-rail rates from this 
territory that they will in no case exceed the combination of locals on 
the Virginia cities, which will result in reductions as illustrated in their 
offer. In many cases these rates now exceed the combination of locals. 

In addition to this, the readjustment which they are undertaking to 
get in the Buffalo-Pittsburg zone, if secured, will extend into and sub- 
stantially lower the all-rail rates from eastern territory, including even 
the eastern port cities. While the success of this adjustment is not cer- 
tain, it depending on the concurrence of northern roads, we were shown 
that such progress had been made on it as to make it very probable. 



XXXV111 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

There was no agreement as to water and rail rates from this territory, 
and that matter is therefore left open. 

OUTBOUND RATES. 

The former proposal adjusted no outbound rates. The present one 
offers outbound class rates on western traffic, observing as a maxima to 
Cincinnati and Louisville the following : 

1 2 3 4 5 6 

100 85 72 57 48 39 

Governed by southern classification. 

Heretofore we have had no through class rates to the west, and all 
such shipments were made on full locals under one classification to Vir- 
ginia cities, and a different one beyond. This resulted not only in very 
high rates, but much annoyance to shippers. The proposed rates will 
remove this annoyance and make large reductions in the rates. 

WATER POINTS. 

We have been unable to secure any reductions to Wilmington, New 
Bern, Washington, Plymouth, Edenton, and Elizabeth City, on account 
of the fact that these points having water competition already have 
rates much lower than other parts of the State, and generally lower than 
the reduced rates will be to any other points in the State. 

We regret our inability to get reductions to these points, but we do 
not feel that it would be just that the whole State be deprived of the sub- 
stantial reductions offered because these points cannot also get reductions, 
and we believe that the citizens of these cities will be too unselfish and 
patriotic to make such a demand, but on the contrary will be glad to see 
the rest of the State enjoy in part the blessings they have already been 
enjoying for a long time. 

CONCLUSION. 

These negotiations were originally begun by the carriers under an 
agreement with the Legislative Commission, having as its main purpose 
the adjustment of rates from the west and to make substantial reduc- 
tions in them. The negotiations have since taken a wider range so as to 
cover as many disputed matters as could be agreed upon and warrant the 
withdrawal of the suits filed by us against the carriers before the Inter- 
state Commerce Commission in December, 1912. 

The present proposition offers such substantial reductions in rates 
from the west as, in our opinion, amounts to a compliance in good faith 
with the original agreement, and makes such adjustment of the matters 
involved in the suits as we believe warrant their withdrawal. 



INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES. XXXIX 

The reductions offered apply to a very large territory, embracing the 
Buffalo-Pittsburg zone, and all territory west thereof and north of the 
Ohio River, and all territory west of the Mississippi River to the Pacific 
Coast. 

The reductions offered will save the shippers of the State, according to 
estimates made by the carriers based on their earnings for 1912, about 
$2,000,000 per year, and are the largest and most comprehensive conces- 
sions in freight rates ever made by the railroads to any State at one 
time. 

It is one of the greatest achievements in railroad rate regulation ever 
gained by any State by any means, and has been done in a remarkably 
short time and at insignificant expense as compared to the magnitude of 
the matter. 

It does not settle all questions in dispute, but those not agreed upon 
are left open so that anything omitted can be later adjusted, and the 
agreement as to those settled remains in force for two years. 

This will afford a reasonable time for the trial of this adjustment to 
see what its effect will be upon the roads, and what the benefits will be 
to the State. At the end of that time such changes may be made as expe- 
rience may show to be wise, and alterations in transportation conditions 
may require. 

The Corporation Commission has from time to time advised with the 
Interstate Commerce Commission in respect to the matters involved, and 
at the conclusion of the negotiations went over the entire proposition of 
the carriers with Hon. Edgar E. Clark, Chairman of the Interstate Com- 
merce Commission, and asked his advice as to whether or not the State 
should accept it. He unhesitatingly advised its' acceptance, and ex- 
pressed the opinion that it would be of great advantage to the State. 

After much study of the whole subject and a mature consideration of 
all the circumstances and conditions, the Corporation Commission unani- 
mously recommends the acceptance of the proposition, with the firm con- 
viction that it will save to the people a large amount of money and give 
renewed impetus to our industrial and commercial development. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. L. Travis, Chairman ; 
W. T. Lee, Commissioner; 
George P. Pell, Commissioner. 

A. J. Maxwell, Cleric. 



KATE ADJUSTMENT: KATES TO AND FROM POINTS IN 
NOKTH CAROLINA. 



Washington, D. C, September 12, 1913. 
Honorable E. L. Travis, Chairman, 

North Carolina Corporation Commission, 
Raleigh, N. C. 

Dear Sir : — Confirming understandings reached during conference of three 
days ending to-day, and summing up the concessions discussed in the various 
conferences between the Corporation Commission and the carriers, we advise 
as follows : 

Subject to the understanding between representatives of the State and rep- 
resentatives of the carriers in conference at Raleigh, N. C, on February 26, 
1913, and to the further condition that the acceptance by the State of the pro- 
posals herein contained shall be a settlement of all pending differences be- 
tween the State of North Carolina and the railways in respect to rates on 
interstate traffic herein adjusted, for a period of at least two years from the 
time of such acceptance, we propose the following revision of rates on inter- 
state traffic to points in North Carolina, viz. : 

RATES FROM THE WEST. 

This heading is intended to embrace points on and north of the Ohio River, 
west of the Buffalo-Pittsburg zone and points west of the Mississippi River 
from which rates are made by the combination on Ohio and Mississippi River 
crossings. 

1. To establish proportional rates from one or more of the Virginia cities 
to points in North Carolina hereinafter described, for use in making joint or 
through rates from the west, lower than the now existing locals from the Vir- 
ginia cities, as follows : 

(Note. — The "existing locals" referred to do not include the locals Roanoke 
to Winston-Salem or Lynchburg to Durham via Norfolk and Western Rail- 
way. ) 

.4.. To points hereinafter referred to as Zone 1 on the line of Southern Rail- 
way North Wilkesboro via Winston- Salem, and Greensboro to Goldsboro and 
thence via Norfolk Southern Railway to but not including New Bern, N. C. ; 
to Apex, N. C. ; to Atlantic Coast Line stations Smithfield to Goldsboro ; and 
to points north of above described line, except as hereinafter described, pro- 
portional rates lower than present locals from Virginia cities as follows : 

Grain. Flour. Potatoes. Special Iron.

11886643344558'5 6 6 3 4 

To Weldon, N. C, proportional rates will be established from Virginia 
cities, on business from the west, lower than the existing locals, to the follow- 
ing extent : _ . n n

Proportional rates to Weldon made as above to be observed as maxima to 
points on Atlantic Coast Line and Seaboard Air Line north of Weldon, and to 
points on Seaboard Air Line. Lewiston branch ; also to points to which present 
rates from Virginia cities are on fifty-five (55) cents scale. 

The scale of proportional rates from Virginia cities to Weldon to be applied 
from Lynchburg, via Southern Railway, to Reidsville. N. C. and as maxima 
to stations on Southern Railway in North Carolina north of Reidsville. 

To Benaja and Brown Summit, on Southern Railway between Reidsville 
and Greensboro, reductions in cents per hundred pounds the same as to Reids- 
ville. 

To points on Norfolk and Western Railway between Lynchburg and Dur- 
ham, and between Roanoke and Winston- Salem, the following reductions :

RATES FROM EASTERN SEABOARD TERRITORY. 

This heading is intended to embrace all territory lying in and east of the 
Buffalo-Pittsburg zone. 

The carriers are in negotiation for readjustment of rates from this territory, 
via all-rail, recognizing combinations of locals as maxima, advocating a con- 
tinuance of existing relations between the rates from the ports and those 



xliv N. C COEPOKATION COMMISSION. 

from the interior, and application of current Rochester rates as maxima from 
points in the Buffalo-Pittsburg zone. 

The success of these negotiations is dependent upon the concurrence of 
originating and connecting lines. 

It is generally known that the Northern and Eastern roads are engaged in 
a general revision of tariffs. The effect of combinations may not, therefore, 
be accurately forecasted. 

What follows as to the changes which may be made in the rates from this 
territory is contingent upon the acceptance by connections of these companies. 

If the basis of rates advocated by these companies can be brought about, 
rates from Buffalo and Pittsburg will be reduced approximately as follows : 

12 3 4 5 6 

Buffalo 12 11 10 3 3 3 

Pittsburg 10 9 8 2 2 2 

Rates all-rail from eastern ports proper and from interior points related 
thereto, in the event the negotiations referred to are successful, would be re- 
duced approximately as follows : 

1 2 3 4 5 G 

New York 3 5 5 3 4 4 

Philadelphia 5 7 7 5 5 5 

Baltimore 3 4 4 3 2 2 

contingent on the continuance of the eastern lines existing locals. 

It should be clearly understood that an advance of five per cent (5%) in 
the existing locals of the eastern lines is in contemplation and will probably 
be made. 

There is also uncertainty whether the present relationship of all interior 
eastern points will be continued. It is not believed, however, that any sub- 
stantial change will be made in that relationship. 

As explained to you, it is not within the power of these lines to make any 
more definite statement than the above with respect to this adjustment from 
the Eastern Seaboard Territory. If the proposals herein contained are ac- 
cepted by the State, we will at once proceed with and diligently pursue nego- 
tiations with eastern connections. 

With respect to rates on iron and steel articles from Pittsburg, we will, as 
agreed with you, undertake to establish a car-load rate of thirty-two and one- 
half (32%) cents on bolts, nuts, structural iron, nails, spikes, bar iron, cotton 
ties, and other articles of iron and steel manufacture, the rates on which, 
north and south of Virginia gateways, are the same as on the articles above 
mentioned; and a rate of thirty-five and one-half (35% ) cents on woven wire 
fencing, sheet-iron roofing, and tin plate in car-loads, and on other articles of 
iron and steel manufacture the rates on which, north and south of Virginia 
gateways, are the same as on the articles above mentioned. 

These rates represent reductions of 3 cents on the first item and of 4 cents 
on the second item. 

Commodity rates on these articles to other points in North Carolina will be 
established, using the same basis as that used in making rates to points in 
Zone No. 1. 

Commodity rates on these articles in less than car-loads will be established 
from Pittsburg representing reductions of two and one-half (2% ) cents per 
hundred pounds to all points in Zone No. 1. 



INTERSTATE FREIGHT RATES. XIV 

These rates will be affected by any changes which may be made in the 
charges north of Virginia gateways. 

Predicated on the continuance of existing locals and the continuance of the 
existing grouping, and on the adoption of the Rochester basis advocated by us 
as maxima from Buffalo and Pittsburg, the reductions in car-load ratings to 
be accomplished by the observance of combinations of locals as maxima, are 
fairly illustrated by the following : 

Hardware, N. O. S., as per official classification, from New England points 
taking Boston rates to the principal destinations in North Carolina, 7 cents 
per hundred pounds. 

From actual shipping points in New York and Philadelphia territory reduc- 
tions on molasses and glucose, in car-loads, in amounts ranging from one and 
one-half (1%) to five (5) cents per hundred pounds. 

Glassware, rated fourth class in official classification, from actual shipping 
points in the Pittsburg district to the principal destinations in North Carolina, 
11 cents. 

Glass bottles, car-load, from Glassboro, N. J., to the principal destinations in 
North Carolina, one (1) cent per hundred pounds. 

These reductions will be greater in the event the basis we are seeking to 
establish is made effective. 

From New York and Philadelphia, crackers, car-load, 4 cents ; canned goods, 
car-load, 4 to 6 cents ; soap, from 3 to 5 cents, to the principal destinations. 

Roofing paper from York, Pa., one and one-half (1%) cents; from Downing- 
ton, Pa., four (4) cents; tin cans from Baltimore, two (2) cents; petroleum 
and its products from Marcus Hook, Pa., reductions ranging from one and one- 
half (1%) to four and one-half (4%) cents; and on strawboard from Pencoyd, 
Pa., two (2) cents. 

The measure of these reductions may be affected as hereinbefore indicated 
with respect to the general adjustment from the interior east by conclusions 
of our eastern connections with respect to the locals north of the gateways 
and likewise with respect to the grouping of interior points. 

We showed you during the conference this week some of our working 
sheets, on which tentative figures have been made, indicating the effect of the 
basis that we have proposed to our eastern connections upon class rates and 
a large number of commodity rates from the eastern ports proper and from 
the interior, in the event the present relationship between the ports and 
the interior is maintained. It is practically impossible to include in this letter 
a comprehensive statement of these figures. 

Furthermore, as explained to you, these proposed changes have not been sub- 
mitted to our eastern connections, and it is not in our power to now state to 
you definitely that they will be established. 

MISCELLANEOUS. 

It is our purpose to establish a line of class rates from North Carolina terri- 
tory to Ohio River crossings and St. Louis, observing the following figures as 
maxima from points in North Carolina to Cincinnati and Louisville : 

1 2 3 4 5 6 

100 85 72 57 48 39 

governed by southern classification. 



Xlvi N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

With respect to commodities manufactured at Atlanta, Chattanooga, and 
Knoxville, and also manufactured in Nashville, Tenn., it is the purpose of the 
carriers to observe the Nashville rates as maxima. 

To Evansville, Cairo, and St. Louis we will apply the same differentials 
westbound as used in making the present eastbound rates. 

We will undertake to establish by addition to the associated railways excep- 
tion sheet rates on glue, car-load, 30,000 lbs. minimum, on sixth class basis. 

On inbound traffic from the Pacific coast we will authorize the application 
south of Virginia cities of the proportional rates established on business from 
the west, as hereinbefore described. 

The car-load rates herein provided on potatoes will apply on the following 
description : "Vegetables, viz. : Apples, Pears, Beets, Cabbage, Onions, Tur- 
nips, and Potatoes, straight or mixed C. L. (potatoes in straight C. L., min. wt., 
May 1st to October 31st, inclusive, 24,000 lbs., and from November 1st to 
April 30th, inclusive, 30,000 lbs.)." 

The car-load rates on grain herein provided will include all classes of grain 
and the products thereof that are embraced in class D of southern classifica- 
tion. 

We have undertaken a revision of rates on bananas from Mobile to North 
Carolina destinations, in car-loads, involving reductions to representative points 
as follows : Raleigh and Greensboro, 11 cents ; Salisbury, 12 cents ; Charlotte, 
13 cents ; Asheville, 13 cents per hundred pounds. 

To points to which the present rates have been depressed by water competi- 
tion reductions will not be made except to make the rates thereto not higher 
than to the next intermediate point.

at chambers. The party appealing shall, within ten days after the notice of 
appeal has been served, file with the Commission exceptions to the decision or

1077. To Supreme Court. Either party may appeal to the Supreme Court 
from the judgment of the Superior Court under the same rules and regulations 
as are prescribed by law for appeals, except that the State of North Carolina, 
if it shall appeal, shall not be required to give any undertaking or make any 
deposit to secure the cost of such appeal, and such court may advance the 
cause on its docket so as to give the same a speedy hearing. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1078. Rates vacated pending appeal, how. The rates of freight and fare 
fixed by the Commission shall be and remain the established rates and shall 
be so observed and regarded by corporations appealing until the same shall be

the railroad company shall within fifteen days file with said Commission a 
justified undertaking, in a sum to be fixed by the Commission, conditioned to 
pay the State of North Carolina the difference between the aggregate freights 
charged or received and those fixed by said Commission, and to make a report 
of freights charged or received every three months during the pendency of 
such appeal ; and whenever such difference in freights equals or exceeds the 
penalty of such undertaking the Commission may require another to be exe- 
cuted and filed with them. From the time the undertaking first mentioned is 
filed the judgment appealed from shall be vacated ; but a failure for ten days 
to file any additional undertaking required by the Commission shall eo instant i 
revive such judgment. Out of the funds paid into the State Treasury under 
this section there shall be refunded to shippers the overpaid freight ascer- 
tained by the final determination of the appeal on the recommendation of the 
Commission, if application therefor is made within one year from such final 
determination. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1079. Judgment Superior Court not vacated by appeal. Any freight or 
passenger rates fixed by the Commission, when approved or confirmed by the 
judgment of the Superior Court, shall be and remain the established rates and 
shall be so observed and regarded by an appealing corporation until the same 
shall be changed, revised, or modified by the final judgment of the Supreme 
Court, if there shall be an appeal thereto, and until changed by the Corpora- 
tion Commission. 1899, c. 164, s. 7.

1081. Peremptory mandamus to enforce order, when no appeal. If no 
appeal is taken from an order or judgment of the Corporation Commission 
within the time prescribed by the law, but the corporation affected thereby 
fails to put said order in operation, the Corporation Commission may apply to 
the judge riding the Superior Court district which embraces Wake County, or 
to the resident judge of said district at chambers, upon ten days notice, for a 
peremptory mandamus upon said corporation for the putting in force of said 
judgment or order ; and if said judge shall find that the order of said Commis- 
sion was valid and within the scope of its powers, he shall issue such peremp- 
tory mandamus. An appeal shall lie to the Supreme Court in behalf of the 
Corporation Commission, or the defendant corporation, from the refusal or the 
granting of such peremptory mandamus. 1905, c. 107.

ing order, or other process staying or affecting, during the pending of any ap- 
peal, the enforcement of any determination of the Corporation Commission fix- 
ing rates or fares, without requiring as a condition precedent the executing 
and filing with the Corporation Commission of a justified undertaking in the 
sum of not less than twenty-five thousand dollars for any company whose road 
is of less length than fifty miles, and fifty thousand dollars for any company 
whose road is over fifty miles in length, conditioned that the company will 
make and file with the Corporation Commission a sworn statement every three 
months during the pending of the appeal of the items of freight, with names of 
shippers, carried over such company's road within the pending ninety days, 
showing the freights charged and those fixed by the Corporation Commission ; 
and in the event the determination of the Corporation Commission appealed 
from is affirmed in part or in whole, such company shall within thirty days 
pay into the treasury of North Carolina the aggregate difference between the 
freights collected and those fixed by the final determination of the matter ap- 
pealed. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1083. Restraining order vacated, when. Whenever the aggregate differ- 
ence between the freights collected and those fixed by the Corporation Commis- 
sion shall equal or exceed the sum specified in the undertaking, the Corpora- 
tion Commission shall notify the appellant that another justified undertaking 
in like sum and with the same conditions as the original undertaking is re- 
quired to be executed and filed with the Corporation Commission. A failure to 
file with the Corporation Commission the sworn statement provided for in the 
preceding section, or any one of them when more than one is required or asked 
for, or a failure to give an additional undertaking when required within fif- 
teen days from notice so to do, shall vacate and render null and void any re- 
straining order, injunction, or other process to stay the enforcement of any 
determination of the Corporation Commission as to schedules of rates. 1899, c. 
164, s. 7. 

1084. Suits on injunction bond. When any of the conditions of such un- 
dertaking are broken it may be sued on and enforced in the name of the 
State of North Carolina on the relation of the Corporation Commission by sum- 
mons returnable to the Superior Court of any county in the State at a regular 
term thereof. The solicitor of the district shall prosecute the action in his 
court in behalf of the State, and shall be allowed such fees, to be taxed in the 
bill of costs, as the court may order ; and the Attorney-General shall prosecute 
on appeal to the Supreme Court on behalf of the State, and shall be allowed 
such fees, to be taxed in the bill of costs, as the court shall allow. 1899, c. 
164, s. 7. 

1085. What recovered; application of recovery. In cases where the sworn 
statements herein required to be made are not made the whole penalty of 
the undertaking shall be enforced and paid into the State Treasury. The 
sums paid into the treasury under the provisions of this section shall be 
used to reimburse the shippers of freight for the excess of freights paid over 
what should have been paid, such reimbursements to be made on recommenda- 
tion of the Corporation Commission : Provided, application therefor is made 



ACTS RELATING TO THE COMMISSION. 7 

within one year after the determination of the appeal in which the undertak-

ing. 1899, c. 164, s. 7.

State, or, if not, to the manager or superintendent or secretary or treasurer if 
residing in the State, or, if not, then to any local agent thereof, ample and full

pay the sum of five hundred dollars for each offense, to be recovered in an 
action to be instituted in the Superior Court of Wake County, in the name of 
the State of North Carolina on the relation of the Corporation Commission ;. 
and each day such company continues to violate any provision of this chapter 
or continues to refuse to obey or perform any rule, order, or regulation pre- 
scribed by the Corporation Commission shall be a separate offense. 1899, c. 
164, s. 23. 

1088. Discrimination between connecting lines. All common carriers sub- 
ject to the provisions of this chapter shall according to their powers afford all 
reasonable, proper, and equal facilities for the interchange of traffic between 
their respective lines and for the forwarding and delivering of passengers and 
freights to and from their several lines and those connecting therewith, and

obstruct the Commission in the discharge of the duties hereby imposed upon it, 
shall forfeit and pay five hundred dollars for each offense, to be recovered in 
an action in the name of the State. A delay of ten days to make and furnish 
such report shall raise the presumption that the same was willful. 1899, c. 
164, s. 18.

sions of this chapter not otherwise provided for, such railroad company shall

Attorney-General or the solicitor of the judicial district in which such penalty 
has been incurred, and the judge before whom the same is tried shall deter- 
mine the amount of compensation to be allowed the Attorney-General or such 
solicitor prosecuting said action for his services, and such compensation so 
determined shall be taxed as part of the cost. The procedure in such actions,

1093. Remedies cumulative. The remedies given by this chapter to per- 
sons injured shall be regarded as cumulative to the remedies now given or

1097 (as amended). Stations and depots. The Commission is empowered 
and directed — 

1. To require, where the public necessity demands and it is demonstrated 
that the revenue received will be sufficient to justify it, the establishment of 
stations by any company or corporation engaged in the transportation of 
freight and passengers in this State, and to require the erection of depot 
accommodations commensurate with such business and revenue, and to require 
the erection of accommodations for loading and unloading live stock, and for 
feeding, sheltering and protecting the same in transportation : Provided, 
the commissioners shall not require any company or corporation to establish 
any station nearer to another station than five miles. 1899, c. 164, s. 2, sub-

convenience of the traveling public, and to unite in the joint undertaking and 
expense of erecting, constructing, and maintaining such union passenger depot, 
commensurate with the business and revenues of such railroad companies or 
corporations, on such terms, regulations, provisions, and conditions as the 
Commission shall prescribe. The railroads so ordered to construct a union 
depot shall have power to condemn land for such purpose, as in case of locat- 
ing and constructing a line of railroad : Provided, that nothing in this section 
shall be construed to authorize the Commission to require the construction of 
such union depot should the railroad companies at the time of application for 
said order have separate depots, which, in the opinion of the Corporation Com- 
mission, are adequate and convenient and offer suitable accommodations for 
the traveling public. 1903, c. 126. ( See page 25. )

railroad company to industries already established or to be established : Pro- 
vided, it is shown that the proportion of such revenue accruing to such side- 
track is sufficient within five years to pay the expense of its construction. 
This shall not be construed to give the Commission authority to require rail- 
road companies to construct side-tracks more than five hundred feet in length. 
1899, c. 164, s. 2, subsec. 15. (See page 25.)

rates on grain ; or lumber to be dressed and shipped over the line of the rail- 
road company on which such freight originated. 

7. And conjointly with such railroad companies, shall have authority to 
make special rates for the purpose of developing all manufacturing, mining, 
milling, and internal improvements in the State. 

Nothing in this chapter shall prohibit railroad or steamboat companies from 
making special passenger rates with excursion or other parties, also rates on 
such freights as are necessary for the comfort of such parties, subject to the

1101. May fix rate of speed trains may run through a town; petition to 
be filed; procedure. If any railroad company shall be of the opinion that 
an ordinance of a city or town through which a line of its railroad passes, 
except in the counties of Cumberland, Rockingham, Union, and Wayne, regu- 
lating the speed at which trains may run while passing through said city or 
town, is unreasonable or oppressive, such railroad company may file its peti- 
tion before the Corporation Commission, setting forth all the facts, and asking 
relief against such ordinance, and that the Corporation Commission prescribe 
the rate of speed at which trains may run through said municipality. Upon 
the filing of the petition a copy thereof shall be mailed, in a registered letter, 
to the mayor or chief officer of the town or municipality, together with a notice 
from the Corporation Commission, setting forth that on a day named in the 
notice the petition of the railroad company will be heard, and that the city or 
town named in the petition will be heard at that time in opposition to the 
prayer of the petition. And upon the return day of the notice the Corporation 
Commission shall hear the petition : Provided, that any hearing granted by 
the Corporation Commission, as authorized by this section, shall be had at the 
town, city, or locality where the conditions complained of are alleged to exist, 
or some member of the said Commission shall take evidence both for the peti- 
tion and against it, at such city, town, or locality, and report to the full Com- 
mission before any decision is made by the Commission. 1903, c. 552. 

1102. To pass on ordinance and fix rate of speed. Either party, peti- 
tioner or respondent, shall have the right to introduce testimony and to be 
heard by counsel, and the Corporation Commission, after hearing the petition, 
answer, evidence, and argument, shall render judgment thereon. If the Com- 
mission shall find that such ordinance is reasonable and just, the petition shall 
be dismissed, and the petitioner shall pay all the costs, to be taxed by the clerk 
to the Corporation Commission. If the Corporation Commission shall be of the 
opinion that the ordinance is unreasonable, it shall so adjudge ; and in addi- 
tion thereto it shall prescribe the maximum rates of speed for passing through 
such town. And thereafter the railroad company may run its trains through 
such town or city at speeds not greater than those prescribed by the Corpora- 
tion Commission, and the ordinance adjudged to be unreasonable shall not be 
enforced against such railroad company. 1903, c. 552, s. 2. 

1103. When costs on hearing to fix rate of speed in discretion of Com- 
mission. If the judgment of the Corporation Commission shall be in favor of 
the petitioner, it shall be lawful for the Corporation Commission to make such 
order as to the paj-ment of the costs as shall seem just. It may require either 
party to pay the same or it may divide the same. The costs in such proceed- 
ing shall be the same as are fixed by law for similar services in the Superior 
Court. 1903, c. 552, s. 3. 

VIII. Rates. 

1104. How fixed. In fixing any maximum rate or charge, or tariff of rates 
or charges for any common carrier, person, or corporation subject to the pro- 
visions of this chapter, the Commission shall take into consideration if proved, 
or may require proof of, the value of the property of such carrier, person, or 



12 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

corporation used for the public, in the consideration of such rate or charge, or 
the fair value of the service rendered in determining the value of the property 
so being used for the convenience of the public. It shall furthermore consider 
the original cost of the construction thereof and the amount expended in per- 
manent improvements thereon, and the present compared with the original cost 
of construction of all its property within the State; the probable earning 
capacity of such property under the particular rates proposed and the sum 
required to meet the operating expenses of such carrier, person, or corpora- 
tion, and all other facts that will enable them to determine what are reason- 
able and just rates, charges, and tariffs. 1899, c. 164, s. 2, subsec. 1. 

1105. What may be carried free. Nothing in this chapter shall prevent 
the carriage, storage, or handling of property free or at reduced rates for the 
United States, State, or municipal governments ; or for charitable or educational 
purposes ; or for any corporation or association incorporated for the preserva- 
tion and adornment of any historic spot ; or to the employees or officers of such 
company or association while traveling in the performance of their duties, pro- 
vided they shall not travel further than ten miles one way on any one trip 
free of charge ; or to or from fairs or exhibitions for exhibition thereat ; or the 
free carriage of destitute and homeless persons transported by charitable so- 
cieties, and the necessary agents employed in such transportation ; or the free 
transportation of persons traveling in the interest of orphan asylums or homes 
for the aged and infirm, or any department thereof; or traveling secretaries 
of Railroad Young Men's Christian Associations, or ex-Confederate soldiers 
attending annual reunions ; or the issuance of mileage, excursion, or commuta- 
tion passenger tickets ; or to prohibit any common carrier from giving reduced 
rates to ministers of religion, or to municipal governments for the transporta- 
tion of indigent persons, or to inmates of National homes or State homes for 
disabled volunteer soldiers, and of soldiers' and sailors' orphan homes, includ- 
ing those about to enter and those returning home after discharge, under 
arrangements with the boards of managers of said homes ; or to prevent com- 
mon carriers from giving free carriage to their own officers and employees and 
members of their families, or furloughed, pensioned, and superannuated em- 
ployees, persons who have become disabled or infirm in the service of any 
such common carrier, and the remains of a person killed in the employment 
of a common carrier, and ex-employees traveling for the purpose of entering 
the service of any such common carrier, and the families of those persons 
named ; also the families of persons killed and the widows during widowhood 
and minor children during minority of persons who died while in the serv- 
ice of any such common carrier ; or to prevent the principal officers of any 
common carrier from exchanging passes, franks, or tickets with other common 
carriers for their officers or employees and members of their families. Noth- 
ing in this section shall be construed to prevent or restrict transportation 
companies from contracting with newspapers for advertising space in ex- 
change for transportation over their lines to such an extent as may be agreed 
upon between the two parties for said consideration. The commissioners and 
their clerks shall be transported free of charge over all railroads and other 
transportation lines which are under the supervision of the Commission ; and 
when traveling on official business they may take with them experts or other

or telephone company. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1107. Long and short hauls. It shall be unlawful for any common car- 
rier to charge or receive any greater compensation in the aggregate for the 
transportation of passengers or of like kind of property under substantially 
similar circumstances and conditions for a shorter than for a longer distance 
over the same line in the same direction, the shorter being included within the 
longer distance ; but this shall not be construed as authorizing any common 
carrier within the terms of this chapter to charge and receive as great com- 
pensation for a shorter as for a longer distance : Provided, however, that 
upon application to the Commission, such common carrier may in special cases 
be authorized to charge less for longer than for shorter distances for the 
transportation of passengers or property ; and the Commission may from time 
to time prescribe the extent to which such designated common carrier may be 
relieved from the operation of this section : Provided, that nothing in this 
chapter contained shall be taken as in any manner abridging or controlling the 
rates of freight charged by any railroad in this State for conveying freight 
which comes from or goes beyond the boundaries of the State and on which 
freight less than local rates on any railroad carrying the same are charged by 
such railroads. 1899, c. 164, s. 14. 

1108. Contracts as to rates. All contracts and agreements between rail- 
road companies as to rates of freight and passenger tariffs shall be submitted 
to the Commission for inspection and correction, that it may be seen whether 
or not they are a violation of law or of the rules and regulations of said Com- 
mission, and all arrangements and agreements whatever as to the division of 
earnings of any kind by competing railroad companies shall be submitted to 
the Commission for inspection and approval in so far as they affect the rules 
and regulations made by the Commission to secure to all persons doing busi- 
ness with such companies just and reasonable rates of freight and passenger 
tariffs ; and the Commission may make such rules and regulations as to such 
contracts and agreements as may then be deemed necessary and proper ; and 
any such agreements not approved by the Commission, or by virtue of which 
rates shall be charged exceeding the rates fixed for freight and passengers, 
shall be deemed, held, and taken to be violations of this chapter, and shall be 
illegal and void. 1899, c. 164, s. 6. 

1109. Published. All carriers shall, whenever required by the Commission, 
file with it a schedule of their rates of charges for freight and passengers, and 
the Commission is authorized and required to publish the rates, or a summary 
thereof, in some convenient form for the information of the public, and quar- 
terly thereafter the changes made in such schedules, if they deem it advisable.

do so, and counsel so employed shall be paid such fee and compensation as 
may be agreed upon by them. 1907, c. 469, s. 5 ; 1899, c. 164, s. 14. 

1111. Duplicate freight receipts; charges stated; freight delivered on 
payment of charges. All railroad companies shall on demand issue duplicate 
freight receipts to shippers in which shall be stated the class or classes of 
freight shipped, the freight charges over the road giving the receipt, and so 
far as practicable shall state the freight charges over the roads that carry 
such freight. When the consignee presents the railroad receipt to the agent 
of the railroad that delivers such freight such agent shall deliver the articles 
shipped upon payment of the rate charged for the class of freight mentioned 
in the receipt. 1899, c. 164, s. 17. 

1112. Schedule of rates* evidence: The schedule containing rates fixed by 
the Commission shall, in suits brought against any company wherein is 
involved the charges of any company for the transportation of any passenger 
or freight or cars or unjust discrimination in relation thereto, be taken in all 
courts as prima facie evidence that the rates therein fixed are just and reason- 
able rates of charges for the transportation of passengers and freights and 
cars upon the railroads. All such schedules shall be received and held in all 
suits as prima facie evidence, the schedules of the Commission without further 
proof than the production of the schedules desired to be used as evidence, with

poration Commission, and certified and signed by the president or engineer of 
such corporation. Code, s. 1977 ; 1871-2, c. 138, s. 41. 

2614. Fast mail trains authorized; one train a day in each direction re- 
quired. The Corporation Commission is hereby empowered, whenever it shall 
appear wise and proper to do so, to authorize any railroad company to run one 
or more fast mail trains over its road, which shall only stop at such stations 
on the line of the road as may be designated by the company : Provided, that 
in addition to such fast mail train said railroad shall run at least one passen- 
ger train in each direction over its road on every day except Sunday, which 
shall stop at every station on the road at which passengers may wish to be

accommodations may be furnished by railroad companies either by separate 
passenger cars or by compartments in passenger cars, which shall be provided 
by the railroads under the supervision and direction of the Corporation Com- 
mission : Provided, that this shall not apply to relief trains in cases of acci- 
dent, to Pullman or sleeping cars, or through express trains that do not stop

The Corporation Commission is hereby authorized to exempt from the provi- 
sions of the preceding section steamboats, branch lines and narrow-gauged 
railroads and mixed trains carrying both freight and passengers, if in its judg- 
ment the enforcement of the same be unnecessary to secure the comfort of 
passengers by reason of the light volume of passenger traffic, or the small 
number of colored passenger travelers on such steamboats, narrow-gauge, 
branch lines or mixed trains. 1899, c. 384, s. 2 ; 1901, c. 213. 

2621. When two races put in same coach. When any coach or compart-

coach or car can be had, and the increased number of passengers could not be 
foreseen, the conductor in charge of such train may assign and set apart a 
portion of a car or compartment assigned for passengers of one race to pas- 
sengers of the other race. 1899, c. 284, s. 3. 

2622. Penalty for failing to provide separate cars. Any railroad com-

2631. Penalty for failure to receive. Agents or other officers of railroads 
and other transportation companies whose duty it is to receive freights shall 
receive all articles of the nature and kind received by such company for trans- 
portation whenever tendered at a regular depot, station, wharf, or boat land- 
ing, and every loaded car tendered at a side-track, or any warehouse connected 
with the railroad by a siding, and shall forward the same by the route selected 
by the person tendering the freight under existing laws ; and the transporta- 
tion company represented by any person refusing to receive such freight shall 
forfeit and pay to the party aggrieved the sum of fifty dollars for each day 
said company refuses to receive said shipment of freight, and all damages 
actually sustained by reason of the refusal to receive freight. If such loaded 
car be tendered at any siding or warehouse at which there is no agent, notice 
shall be given to an agent at the nearest regular station at which there is an 
agent that such car is loaded and ready for shipment. Code, s. 1964 ; 1903, cc. 
414, 693. (Held invalid as to interstate shipments.) 

2632 (as amended). Failure to transport in reasonable time; reasonable

steamboat company, express company, or other transportation company doing 
business in this State to omit or neglect to transport within a reasonable time 
any goods, merchandise, or articles of value received by it for shipment and 
billed to or from any place in the State of North Carolina, unless otherwise 
agreed upon between the company and the shipper, or unless same be burned, 
stolen, or otherwise destroyed, or unless otherwise provided by the North Caro- 
lina Corporation Commission. Each and every company violating any of the 
provisions of this section shall forfeit to the party aggrieved the sum of fifteen 
dollars for the first day and two dollars for each succeeding day of such un- 
lawful detention or neglect where such shipment is made in car-load lots, 
and in less quantities there shall be a forfeiture in like manner of ten dollars 
for the first day and one dollar for each succeeding day : Provided, the for- 
feiture shall not be collected for a period exceeding thirty days. In reckoning 
what is reasonable time for such transportation, it shall be considered that 
such transportation company has transported freight within a reasonable time 
if it has done so in the ordinary time required for transporting such articles 
of freight between the receiving and shipping stations ; and a delay of two 
days at the initial point and forty-eight hours at one intermediate point for 
each hundred miles of distance or fractions thereof over which said freight 
is to be transported shall not be charged against such transportation company 
as unreasonable, and shall be held to be prima facie reasonable, and a failure 
to transport within such time shall be held prima facie unreasonable. 1903, c. 
590, s. 3 ; 1905, c. 545 ; 1907, c. 217, s. 4. 

Delivery at destination within time specified. Section 1. That section 
two thousand six hundred and thirty-two, Revisal of one thousand nine hun- 
dred and five of North Carolina, providing a penalty for delay in the transpor- 
tation of freight, shall not be construed to refer only to delay in starting the 
freight from the station where it is received, but in addition thereto shall be 
construed to require the delivery at its destination within the time specified : 
Provided, however, that if said delay shall be due to causes which could not 
in the exercise of ordinary care have been foreseen, and which were unavoid- 
able, and upon establishment of these facts to the satisfaction of the justice 
Pt. I— Corp. Com., 1913—2 



18 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

of the peace or jury trying the cause, the defendant transportation company 
shall be relieved and discharged from any penalty for delay in the transporta- 
tion of freight, but it shall not be relieved from the costs of such action. 

Sec 2. That in all actions to recover penalties against a transportation 
company under section two thousand six hundred and thirty-two, Revisal of 
one thousand nine hundred and five of North Carolina, the burden of proof 
shall be upon the transportation company to show where the delay, if any, 
occurred. 1907, c. 461. 

2633. Paid at classified rates; penalty for overcharge. All common car- 
riers doing business in this State shall settle their freight charges according to 
the rate stipulated in the bill of lading, provided the rate therein stipulated be 
in conformity with the classifications and rates made and filed with the Inter- 
state Commerce Commission in case of shipments from without the State and 
with those of the Corporation Commission of this State in case of shipments 
wholly within this State, by which classifications and rates all consignees shall 
in all cases be entitled to settle freight charges w r ith such carriers ; and it shall 
be the duty of such common carriers to inform any consignee or consignees of 
the correct amount due for freight according to such classification and rates, 
and upon payment or tender of the amount due on any shipment which has 
arrived at its destination according to such classification and rates such com- 
mon carrier shall deliver the freight in question to consignee or consignees, 
and any failure or refusal to comply with the provisions hereof shall subject 
such carrier so failing or refusing to a penalty of fifty dollars for each such 
failure or refusal, to be recovered by any consignee or consignees aggrieved 
by any suit in any court of competent jurisdiction. 1905, c. 330. 

2634 (as amended). Time within which loss or damage must be paid; pen- 
alty; amount of recovery; actions united; remedy cumulative. Every claim 
for loss of or damage to property while in possession of a common carrier 
shall be paid and adjusted within ninety days, in cases of shipments wholly 
within the State, and within four months, in cases of shipments from without 
the State, after the filing of such claim with the agent of such carrier at the 
point of destination of such shipment, or point of delivery to another common 
carrier by the consignee, or at the point of origin by the consignor, when it 
shall appear that the consignor was the owner of the shipment : Provided, 
that no such claim shall be filed until after the arrival of the shipment, or 
some part thereof, at the point of destination or until after the lapse of a 
reasonable time for the arrival thereof. In every case such common carrier 
shall be liable for the amount of such loss or damage, together with interest 
thereon from the date of the filing of the claim therefor until the payment 
thereof. Failure to adjust and pay such claim within the periods respectively 
herein prescribed shall subject such common carrier so failing to a penalty of 
fifty dollars for each and every such failure, to be recovered by any consignee 
aggrieved (or consignor, when it shall appear that the consignor was the owner 
of the property at the time of the shipment and at the time of suit, and is, 
therefore, the party aggrieved) in any court of competent jurisdiction: Pro- 
vided, that unless such consignee or consignor recover in such action the full 
amount claimed, no penalty shall be recovered, but only the actual amount of 
the loss or damage, with interest aforesaid. Causes of action for the recovery 
of the possession of the property shipped, for loss or damage thereto, and for 



ACTS EELATING TO THE COMMISSION. 19 

the penalties herein provided for, may be united in the same complaint : 
Provided further, that no penalty shall be recoverable under the provisions of 
this act where claims have been filed by both the consignor and consignee, un- 
less the time herein provided has elapsed after the withdrawal of one of the 
claims : Provided further, that this act shall not apply to any pending actions. 
1911, c. 139. 

Express companies to pay claims for loss or damage. That section two 
thousand six hundred and thirty-four of the Revisal shall apply to every 
express company, firm, or corporation doing express business in the State of 
North Carolina. 1907, c. 983. 

2635. Existing remedies continue. The preceding section shall not deprive 
any consignee of any rights or remedies now existing against common carriers 
in regard to freight charges or claims for loss or damage to freight, but shall 
be deemed and held as creating an additional liability upon said common car- 
rier. 1905, c. 330, s. 5.

Whereas the present General Assembly has enacted a law which, among 
other provisions, requires railroad companies to check baggage upon presenta- 
tion of mileage books and the removal therefrom of the baggage slips, but as 
provided in said act there is no method by which the convenience of the 
public can be protected and the rights of the railroad companies safeguarded ; 
and whereas it is desirable that reasonable regulations, with regard to both of 
said purposes, shall be provided, to be put in effect on the first day of May, 
1911, when the said act shall go into effect : now, therefore, 

The General Assembly of North Carolina do enact:

within the opinion of the said Corporation Commission as shall be necessary 
and proper to safeguard and protect both the convenience of passengers and 
the rights of railroad companies, and the said rules and regulations of the said 
Corporation Commission, when so promulgated, shall have the same force and 
effect as if the said regulations were a part of section four of this act. 

Sec 2. The Corporation Commission shall formulate and promulgate the 
said rules on or before the fifteenth day of April, and the railroad companies 
shall, after the first day of May, check baggage upon such mileage in accord- 
ance with the rules and regulations which shall be so promulgated. 

Sec 3. This act shall be in force from and after its ratification. 1911,

ule for the nearest distance. 

Sec 4a. Should any one or more of the common carriers affected by the 
rates prescribed in this act' make representation to the Governor of the State

faith and that there is good and sufficient reason for investigating the facts,

sonable and necessary for the completion of the investigation. 

Sec 4b. Should the special commission herein provided for find that the 
rates prescribed herein are or would be confiscatory or unreasonable, then

Carolina may be conferred by law, may at any time that it may appear to its 
satisfaction that the maximum rates 'fixed by this act are unreasonable, fix 
by order of such commission or body such maximum rates, higher or lower 
than the maximum rates specified and fixed by this act, on the line or lines 
of any railroad company within the State of North Carolina which does not

and such Corporation Commission or other commission or body so having 
jurisdiction and power conferred upon it by the General Assembly of North 
Carolina to fix rates may as to any railroad company which does own, main- 
tain, control, or operate as much as seventy-five miles of railroad fix maxi- 
mum rates higher or lower than the maximum rates specified in this act after

law or prescribed and established by such commission, hear evidence as to 
the reasonableness of the maximum rates fixed by law, or by such commission 
or body, and establish such rates, in the manner prescribed and allowed by 
law, as may, in the judgment of said commission, be just, subject to the limi- 
tations fixed by this act ; and from such an order of such commission any 
shipper or railroad company directly affected by such order may, under rules 
and regulations prescribed by law, or under reasonable rules and regulations 
prescribed by such commission, appeal to the Superior Court of North Caro- 
lina : Provided, that pending the appeal of any railroad company from an

rate specified in this act for the shipment of such article, or for the class in 
which such article is assigned, by lawful classification at the time of the 
ratification of this act, or when such article is not assigned to any class, such 
rate so charged for the shipment of such commodity or property shall be the 
maximum rate which shall lawfully be charged, unless the same be raised in 
the manner and under the circumstances contemplated, provided for and 
allowed by the provisions of this act for an increase in the maximum rate 
fixed by this act.

the State such railroad company shall not charge any greater rate for trans- 
porting a like kind and quantity of property a shorter distance than is 



ACTS RELATING TO THE COMMISSION. 43

direction, and where the shorter haul is embraced and included in the longer 
haul. 

Sec. 10. That where the shipment of freight is over the line or lines of two 
or more independently owned or independently controlled and operated rail- 
road companies, and where such shipment originates and stops within the 
State of North Carolina, and where the entire haul is within the State of 
North Carolina, the maximum rates fixed under the provisions of this act or 
by order of such commission as herein provided shall be the maximum rates 
charged for such haul, except that in case of shipments of freight in less than 
car-load lots, and in the event of shipment of any class of freights in car-load 
lots, the North Carolina Corporation Commission, or such commission having 
conferred upon it power and jurisdiction to fix freight rates within North 
Carolina, may upon the application of such company or companies fix as per

local charges fixed by law or by the lawful order of such commission to and 
from such junction points, and such commission shall have the power to fix 
charges for transferring freight from one line to another where such roads do 
not connect.

points in North Carolina, and freight is routed or directed by the shipper or 
consignee to be transported over a shorter route, and it is in fact shipped by a 
longer route between such points, the rate fixed by law or by such commission 
for the shorter route shall be the maximum rate which may be charged, and 
it shall be unlawful to charge more for transporting such freight over the 
longer route than the lawful charge for the shorter route.

shall charge a rate for transporting property wholly within the State of North 
Carolina, between terminals within the State, in excess of that fixed by law 
or by the lawful order of such commission or board, and which shall omit to

sion shall require the railroad companies, and may require all other such 
public-service companies as are mentioned in this act, to keep separate the 
cost of doing interstate and intrastate business in North Carolina, and to keep

keeping the accounts, and to enforce by penalties, contempt, or otherwise as 
the law provides, obedience to their orders.

ter. 1903, c. 275, s. 6; 1907, c. 829, s. 4. 

II. Powers and Duties. 

228. Powers. In addition to the powers conferred by law upon private cor- 
porations, banking corporations, banking and trust companies doing a fiduciary

1. To exercise by its board of directors or duly authorized officers or agents, 
subject to law, all such powers as shall be necessary to carry on the business 
of banking, by discounting and negotiating promissory notes, drafts, bills of 
exchange and other evidences of debt, by receiving deposits, by buying and sell- 
ing exchange, coin and bullion, by loaning money on personal security or real 
or personal property. Such corporations at the time of making loans or dis- 
counts may take and receive in advance such interest as may be agreed upon, 
not exceeding the legal rate. 

2. To purchase, hold and convey real estate for the following purposes: 

1st. Such as shall be necessary for the convenient transaction of its busi- 
ness, including with its banking offices other apartments to rent as a source 
of income, which investment shall not exceed twenty-five per cent of its paid-in 
capital stock and permanent surplus : Provided, that this provision shall not 
apply to any such investment made before the ninth day of March, one thou- 
sand nine hundred and three. 

2d. Such as is mortgaged to it in good faith by way of security for loans 
made or money due to such bank. 

3d. Such as is conveyed to it in satisfaction of debts previously contracted 
in the course of its dealings. 

4th. Such as it acquires by sale under execution or judgment of any court 
in its favor. 

Any and all power and privileges heretofore granted and given to any per- 
son, firm or corporation doing a banking business in connection with a fidu- 
ciary and surety business or the right to deal to any extent in real estate

829, s. 5. 

228a. Limitation on trust company as to real estate holdings. Such 
bank and trust company doing a general banking and trust, fiduciary and

sale under execution or judgment of any court in its favor. 1907, c. 829, s. 6. 

229. When bank may purchase its stock. No bank shall be the holder

48 N. C. CORPOEATION COMMISSION. 

230. Reorganization. Whenever any bank, under the laws of this State or 
of the United States, is authorized to dissolve, and shall have taken the neces- 
sary steps to effect dissolution, it shall be lawful for a majority of the directors 
of such bank, upon the authority in writing of the owners of two-thirds of its 
capital stock, with the approval of the Corporation Commission, to execute 
articles of incorporation as provided in this chapter, which articles, in addition 
to the requirements of law, shall further set forth the authority derived from 
the stockholders of such dissolved National bank or State bank, and upon filing 
the same as hereinbefore provided for the organization of banks, the same 
shall become a bank under the laws of this State, and thereupon all assets, real 
and personal, of the dissolved National bank shall, by operation of law, be vested 
in and become the property of such State bank, subject to all liabilities of such 
National bank not liquidated under the laws of the United States before such 
reorganization. 1903, c. 275, s. 17. 

231. Reserve fund. Every bank or banking and trust company doing busi- 
ness and engaging in a banking, trust, fiduciary or surety business and dealing 
in real estate, shall at all times have on hand as a reserve in available funds 
an amount equal to at least fifteen per cent of the aggregate amount of its 
deposits. Two-fifths of such fifteen per cent shall be cash in the vaults of the 
bank. Savings banks shall have on hand at all times, as a reserve in available 
funds, an amount equal to at least five per cent of their aggregate deposits. 
1903, c. 275, s. 28 ; 1907, c. 829, s. 7. 

232. Available funds; when below reserve; no new loans or dividends. 
The available funds shall consist of cash on hand and balances due from other 
solvent banks. Cash shall include lawful money of the United States, and ex- 
change for any clearing house association. AVhenever the available funds of 
any bank shall fall below the reserve herein required, such bank shall not 
make any new loans or discounts otherwise than by discounting or purchasing 
bills of exchange payable at sight ; nor shall such bank make any dividends of 
its profits until it has on hand the available funds required by this chapter. 
1903, c. 275, s. 29. 

233. Loans to one person not to exceed ten per cent of capital. The 
total liabilities to any bank or banking institution or banking or trust company 
doing a fiduciary and surety business and dealing in real estate, of any person, 
or of any company, corporation or firm for money borrowed, including in the 
liabilities of a company or firm the liabilities of the several members thereof, 
shall at no time exceed one-tenth part of the amount of the capital stock of 
such bank or banking institution actually paid in. But the discount of bills of 
exchange drawn in good faith against actually existing values and the dis- 
count of commercial or business paper actually owned by the person negotiating

be held at its office in the agricultural building, Raleigh, N. C, on the first 
Wednesday of each month at 11 o'clock a. m. Where special sessions are held 
at other places, such regulations as may be necessary will be made by the 
court. 

Parties. 

2. Where a complaint concerns anything done or omitted to be done by only 
a single carrier no other need be made a party, but if it relates to joint tariffs, 
or matters in which two or more carriers doing business under a common con- 
trol, management, or arrangement for a continuous carriage or shipment are 
interested, all the carriers constituting such line must be made parties. A 
complaint may embrace several carriers, or lines of carriers, operated sepa- 
rately, in the same proceeding, when the subject-matter of the complaint 
involves substantially the same alleged violation of the law by the several 
carriers or lines. Persons or carriers not parties may apply, in any pending 
case or proceeding, for leave to intervene and to be heard upon the questions 
involved. 

GENERAL RULES. 

Proceedings Before the Court. 

3. All petitions and complaints, made before the court for redress of alleged 
grievances must plainly and distinctly set forth the grounds of complaint, the 
items being numbered and objections all set forth in writing. In like manner 
all defenses must be distinctly set forth in writing, and the items numbered as 
above stated. These specifications, whether of complaint or defense, may be 
accompanied, if the parties desire, by an explanation or argument, or by any 
suggestion as to the proper remedy or policy, and may be verified by the affi- 
davit of the party complaining or petitioning, taken before any person author- 
ized to administer oaths in North Carolina, and when the complaint or petition 
is verified, then the answer thereto shall be verified, and the verification shall 
conform to the rules prescribed in The Code of North Carolina for the verifi- 
cation of pleadings. The parties may also be heard in person or by attorney, 
or by written argument, upon such written statement being first filed. 

4. If a carrier complained against shall deem the complaint insufficient to 
show a breach of legal duty, it may, instead of filing an answer, serve on the 
complainant notice for a hearing of the case on the complaint ; and in case of 
the service of such notice, the facts stated in the complaint will be taken as 
admitted. A copy of the notice must at the same time be filed with the court. 
The filing of an answer will not be deemed an admission of the sufficiency of 
the complaint, but a motion to dismiss for insufficiency may be made at the 
hearing. 



RULES OF PRACTICE BEFORE THE COMMISSION. 57 

Service of Papers. 

5. Copies of notices or other papers must be served upon the opposite par- 
ties to the proceeding, personally or by mail, and when any party shall have 
appeared by attorney, the service upon the attorney shall be deemed proper 
service upon the party. If party so notified shall fail to answer within ten 
days after such notice, then the court in its discretion may grant the relief 
demanded. 

Amendments. 

6. Upon application by any petitioner or party, amendments may be allowed 
by the court, in its discretion, to any petition, answer, or other pleading in 
any proceeding before the Commission. 

Adjournment and Extension of Time. 

7. Adjournment and extension of time may be granted upon the application 
of parties, in the discretion of the court. 

Stipulations. 

8. Parties to cases and proceedings before the court may, by stipulation, 
duly signed by them and filed with the secretary, agree upon the facts, or 
any portion of the facts, they deem to be involved in the controversy, which 
agreed statement shall be regarded and used as evidence. It is desirable that 
the facts be thus agreed upon whenever practicable. 

Hearings. 

9. Upon issue being joined by the service of answer, the court will assign a 
time and place for hearing the same, which will be at its office in Raleigh, 
N. C, at its regular session, unless otherwise ordered. Witnesses will be 
examined orally before the court, unless testimony be taken or facts agreed 
upon as otherwise provided in these rules. The petitioner or complainant 
must in all cases prove the existence of the facts alleged to constitute a viola- 
tion of the act, unless the carrier complained of shall admit the same, or shall 
fail to answer the complaint. Facts alleged in the answer must also be proved 
by the carrier, unless admitted by the petitioner. In cases of failure to 
answer, the court will take such proof of the charge as may be deemed rea- 
sonable and proper, and make such order thereon as the circumstances of the 
case appear to require. 

Witnesses and Depositions. 

10. Subpoenas requiring the attendance of witnesses will be issued by any 
member of the court in all cases and proceedings before it, and witnesses will 
be required to obey the subpoena served upon them requiring their attendance 
or the production of any books, papers, tariffs, contracts, agreements, or docu- 
ments relating to any matter under investigation or pending before the court. 
When a subpoena is desired for the production of books, papers, or other docu- 
mentary evidence, special application must be made to the court therefor, 
specifying the documentary evidence desired. When a cause is at issue on pe- 
tition and answer, each party may proceed at once to take depositions of wit- 



58 N. C. CORPORATION" COMMISSION. 

nesses in the manner provided by section 1357 of The Code of North Carolina, 
and transmit them to the secretary of the Commission without making any 
application to or obtaining any authority from the court for that purpose. 

Proposed Findings of Fact. 

11. Upon the final submission of a case to the court either party may sub- 
mit proposed findings of fact for the consideration of the court, which findings 
must embrace only the material facts of the case supposed to be established 
by the testimony. 

Reports. 

12. Each railroad company doing business within the State of North Caro- 
lina shall file in the office of the court quarterly reports showing in detail 
statement of freight and passenger earnings, operating expenses, etc., on such 
forms as may be prescribed from time to time by the court.

tions, where no proper appliances are supplied and no regular depot hand is 
employed, the train hands shall be required to assist the baggage-master, and 
lift with care all baggage from the car doors. 

2. All railroad companies, in addition to the usual bell cord, shall place a 
safety cord in each coach of the regular passenger trains, running through 
the entire length of the same. 

3. It shall be the duty of the Pullman Car Company, at all stations, on the 
stopping of trains, to have the doors of their cars open for the reception of 
passengers and require the porter to have a step ready for the convenience of 
passengers desiring to enter: 

4. It shall be the duty of every railway company operating a railroad in 
this State to place a bulletin board in a conspicuous place at each of its ticket 
offices, upon which shall be bulletined the time that each train, upon which 
passengers are hauled, is due to arrive and depart under its published sched- 
ule. It shall also be the duty of each railway company, at each telegraph 
station upon its line, thirty (30) minutes before the time that its said trains 
are due to arrive at such station, to bulletin the fact upon said board as to 
whether said train is on time or not, and if behind schedule time to state, as 
nearly as can be approximated, the time it is behind ; and, whenever there is 
any indefinite delay of any passenger train, it shall be the duty of the rail- 
road company to cause to be bulletined at all of such stations the cause of 
such delay, and the probable continuation thereof, and the passengers aboard 
such train shall also be informed of the probable delay ; it shall also be the 
duty of the railroad company to cause its bulletins of all delayed trains to 
be corrected from time to time as the entries thereon can be ascertained by 
them to be incorrect. (Circular No. 79.) 

Checking Baggage on Mileage Book Before Exchange for Ticket. Condi- 
tions upon which baggage may be checked upon presentation of mileage 
books: By virtue of a supplemental act of the General Assembly of 1911, 
ratified on the 8th day of March, 1911 : 



RULES OF PRACTICE BEFORE THE COMMISSION. 59 

(a) When passengers desire to exercise the privilege of checking baggage 
upon mileage books, railroad companies shall not be required to check the 
baggage unless the mileage book and the baggage are each the property of 
the person for whom the baggage is to be checked. < 

(6) That when baggage is checked upon mileage book before coupons have 
been exchanged for a ticket, the baggage agent shall tear off the baggage strip 
for the distance baggage is checked, and shall mark or stamp date of issue 
and destination to which baggage is checked on the face or back of such part 
of mileage coupons as correspond with baggage coupons detached. 

(c) The passenger may at any time within twenty-four hours thereafter 
present to the ticket agent this particular mileage book and obtain mileage 
exchange ticket, which ticket shall read to the destination to which baggage 
was checked. 

Failure to present and obtain from the ticket agent a ticket in exchange for 
said marked or stamped mileage coupons within twenty-four hours shall 
cause a forfeiture of that part of the mileage coupons from which the bag- 
gage strip is detached, and the railroad company may refuse to take same in 
exchange for mileage exchange tickets. 

Effective May 1, 1911. 

RULES GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF FREIGHT. 

1. All connecting railroads which are under the management and control, 
by lease, ownership, or otherwise, of one and the same company, shall, for pur- 
poses of transportation, in applying this tariff, be considered as constituting 
but one and the same road, and the rates shall be computed as upon parts of 
one and the same road, unless otherwise specified. 

Distances. 

2. Since a separate rate cannot be conveniently given for every possible dis- 
tance, the law authorizes the Commission "to ascertain what shall be the 
limits of longer and shorter distances." Five (5) miles has, accordingly, been 
fixed as the limit for a change of freight rates for all distances less than one 
hundred miles; and ten (10) miles for all distances over one hundred miles. 
The commissioners reserve the right, however, to correct the charge in extreme 
cases which work hardship, although the same may not violate the letter of 
our rules. 

3. For all distances over five (5) miles and under one hundred (100) miles, 
the following rule will apply: When the mileage does not end in or 5 the 
nearest mileage so ending shall govern the rate. Illustration : For a distance 
of twenty-seven miles charge for twenty-five miles, for a distance of twenty- 
eight miles charge for thirty miles. 

4. When freight is transported any distance greater than one hundred miles, 
if the mileage does not end in 0, then next ten (10) miles group above shall 
govern the rate. Illustration: For one hundred and twenty-one miles charge 
for one hundred and thirty. 

5. For distance under twenty miles or over two hundred and fifty miles, a 
reduction of rates may be made without making a change at all stations short 
of two hundred and fifty miles : Provided, however, that when any railroad 



60 N". C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

shall make a reduction of rates for distances over two hundred and fifty 
miles, the same shall apply to similar distances on all the roads controlled by 
the same company, and in no case shall more be charged for a less than a 
'greater distance. 

Regulations Concerning Freight Rates. 

6.. The freight rates prescribed by the Commission are maximum rates, 
which shall not be transcended by the railroads. They may carry, however, 
at less than the prescribed rates : Provided, that if they carry for less for 
one person, they shall for the like service carry for the same lessened rate for 
all persons except as mentioned hereafter ; and if they adopt less freight 
Tates from one station, they shall make a reduction of the same per cent at 
all stations along the line of the road, so as to make no unjust discrimination 
as against any person or locality. But when there are between any two 
points in this State two or more competing roads not under the same manage- 
ment or in the same system, then the longer line or lines, in order to give said 
points the benefit of competition, may reduce the rates between said two 
points below the standard tariff, without making a corresponding reduction 
at all stations along the lines of said roads : Provided, said reduction shall 
not make the rates less than the standard tariff rates for the shortest line 
between said points : Provided further, that before taking effect the pro- 
posed change of rates shall be submitted to and approved by the Commission. 
When any special rate is made it shall be submitted to the Commission for 
approval, and such special rates shall not be withdrawn without thirty days 
notice to the Commission. 

7. The rates charged for freight service by regular passenger trains may be 
one and a half times that for first-class freight by ordinary freight trains. 

8. No railroad company shall, by reason of any contract with any express or 
other company, decline or refuse to act as a common carrier, to transport any 
article proper for transportation by the train for which it is offered. 

9. Minimum charge for single shipments. See Circular No. 30. 

10. No railroad company doing business within this State shall permit a 
blockade of any class of freight on account of any arrangement existing 
between it and other railroad companies as to the transportation of freight 
according to percentage or otherwise. 

11. There shall be no secret reduction of rates, nor shall any bonus be given, 
or any rebate paid to any person, but the rates shall be uniform to all, and 
public. 

12. The rates specified for ores, sand, clay, rough stone, common brick, bone, 
lumber, shingles, laths, staves, empty barrels, wood, straw, shucks, hay, fod- 
der, corn in ear, tan-bark, turpentine, rosin, tar. household goods, are maxi- 
mum rates, but the roads are left free to reduce them at discretion, and all 
such rates are exempt from the operation of Rule 6. All complaints as to 
such rates will, on presentation, be duly considered. 

13. When railroad companies are required to load or unload car-load ship- 
ments of classes L, M, N, O, and P. or to load car-load shipments of naval 
stores, the actual cost of such service shall be paid by shippers.

18. Railroad companies are not required to receive cotton or other mer- 
chandise and warehouse the same unless the articles offered are in good ship- 
ping condition, well prepared by the shipper with proper packing and legible, 
plain marking, and accompanied with orders for immediate shipping. 

19. Car-load rates apply to a shipment of a car-load or more made by one 
shipper, at one time, to one and the same point of delivery, to the same con- 
signee. 

Estimated Weights. 

20. Lumber, coal, lime, brick, stone, and all articles for which estimated 
weights are given in classification (except live stock, ale and beer, and empty 
ale and beer packages, L. C. L.) will be taken at actual weight when the 
weight can be ascertained, but when the weight cannot be ascertained, will 
be charged at the following estimated weights. This is not to interfere, how- 
ever, with the duty of receiving agent to weigh, if possible, and correct to 
actual weight :

21. In cases in which the classification of any article is lowered by a per- 
centage, railroad companies which are allowed an increase on the standard 
tariff shall apply the increase allowed to the reduced classification ; but in 
cases in which the classification of any article is raised by percentage, railroad 
companies which are allowed an increase on the standard tariff shall not 
apply said increase to the already increased classification, but only to the 
standard tariff. 

22. When any article is too bulky to put in a box car, it shall be subject to 
charge for minimum weight of 4,000 pounds, and at first class. (Circular 148.) 

23. A ton of all articles is 2,000 pounds. A car-load is 20,000 pounds unless 
otherwise specified. For loads above 20,000 pounds, pro rata at car-load rates

and unload. 

24. All depots situated in incorporated towns and cities in this State must 
be kept open each day (Sunday excepted) for the receiving and delivery of 
freight, as follows : From April 1 to September 30, between the hours of 7 
a. m. and 6 p. m. From October 1 to March 31, 7 :30 a. m. and 5 o'clock p. m., 
with an intermission in each case of one hour, from 12 o'clock m. to 1 o'clock 
p. M. 

25. Railroad companies whose lines do not exceed ten miles in length may 
charge from any point on their road the rates prescribed for ten miles. (Abro- 
gated. See Laws 1907, c. 217.) 

26. Deduction for joint haul. (See statute.) 

27. When railroad rates are affected by water competition the railroads 
may reduce their rates between points so affected without being required to 
reduce intermediate rates : Provided, Koivever, that if complaint is made that 
such competition rates unjustly discriminate against other places or persons 
the commissioners w T ill investigate and rule in each case. 

28. No common carrier shall, for any cause, subject any article of freight to 
unreasonable delay in receiving, delivering, or forwarding the same to its 
destination. 

29. When a shipment is offered at a point where there are two routes over 
connecting lines to destination it shall be the duty of the railroad company 
making shipment to forward same by the shortest route, unless the rate 
charged over the longer route does not exceed that of the shorter, or unless 
otherwise ordered by the shipper. 

30. A charge of no more than two dollars per car will be allowed for switch-

miles, four dollars, without regard to weight or contents. 

31. When in the transfer of a car between said points it is necessary to pass 
over the line of any intermediate road or roads, the maximum charge of two, 
three, or four dollars, as the case may be, shall be equitably divided between 
the roads at interest. 



EULES OF PRACTICE BEFORE THE COMMISSION. 63 

32. When a charge is made for the transfer of loaded cars between said 
points no additional charge shall he made for the delivery or return of the 
empty cars. 

33. All specials less than our standard rates heretofore granted by carriers 
within the jurisdiction of the Commission, and which do not conflict with the 
law preventing unjust discrimination, until further orders, will be enforced. 

Posting Tariffs. 

34. Each railroad company doing business within the State of North Caro- 
lina shall post, and keep posted, at each of its respective stations in a con- 
spicuous place a copy of the schedules of freight and passenger rates pre- 
scribed for said road by the Commission, together with a copy of the commis- 
sioners' classification, and a table of distances between stations, giving name 
of each station. And when any change in said schedule of rates or classifica- 
tion is made, either by the Commission or by any railroad company, a copy 
of said change shall be immediately furnished the office of the commissioners 
and shall also be posted in the same manner as the above. 

35. The rates prescribed by the Commission shall (except in cases specified) 
apply in either direction. 

36. An allowance of 500 pounds per car will be made for weight of stand- 
ards, strips and supports of car-load shipments of lumber loaded on flat or 
gondola cars, but in no case must less than the minimum car-load weight 
specified in tariffs be charged for on each car. In computing freight charges 
under this rule, agents will deduct 500 pounds from the gross weight of each 
car-load, then subtract the tare weight (the weight of car), and extend freight 
charges on basis of remainder, which is the net weight, subject to the mini- 
mum car-load weight specified in tariffs. (Circular No. 58.) 

37. Shipments of freight, except articles classified first class or higher, 
which are not delivered at destination, shall be returned between points in 
this State at one-half the rates applying to the reverse direction : Provided, 
that the full amount of freight charges in both directions shall have been paid 
or guaranteed by owners : Provided further, that such return is made within 
ninety days of arrival at destination. Billing for the return shipment must 
show proper reference to the original billing. The foregoing shall not apply 
on machinery, agricultural implements, or other articles returned for repairs : 
Provided, however, that the above rule shall not operate to reduce the mini- 
mum charge on single shipments. (Circular No. 59.) 

*38. (A) When a number of different articles (provided with L. C. L. and 
C. L. ratings) are shipped at one time by one consignor to one consignee and 
destination, in car-loads, they will be charged at the C. L. rate applicable to 
the highest classed or rated article and at minimum car-load weight as pro- 
vided in Sections B or C of this rule (actual or estimated weight to be charged 
for if in excess of the minimum weight), excepting that if the aggregate 
charge upon the entire shipment is less on basis of C. L. rate and minimum 
car-load weight (actual or estimated weight if in excess of the minimum 
weight) for one or more of the articles and on basis of actual or estimated 
weight at L. C. L. rate or rates for the other article or articles, the shipment 
will be charged accordingly. 



64 



W. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 



(B) If all of the articles in the mixture take the same class or rate in car- 
loads, the minimum car-load weight will be the highest provided for any of 
the articles. 

(C) If the articles in the mixture are differently classified or rated in car- 
loads, the minimum car-load weight will be the highest provided for any 
article or articles taking the highest C. L. class or rate, provided the actual 
weight (or estimated weight if so classified or rated) of the article or articles 
taking the highest C. L. class or rate is 10 per cent or more of the highest 
minimum car-load weight provided for any of the articles taking the highest 
C. L. class or rate. 

If the articles in the mixture are differently classified or rated in car- 
loads and the actual or estimated weight of the article or articles taking the 
highest C. L. class or rate is less than 10 per cent of the highest minimum 
car-load weight provided for any of such articles, they will not be entitled to 
be included in the mixture, but will be separately charged at their L. C. L. 
rate or rates. (See Section D.) 

(D) If the aggregate charge upon any mixed car-load shipment of articles 
differently classified or rated in car-loads is less on basis of the C. L. rate 
for the article or articles taking the highest class or rate and on basis of the 
highest car-load minimum weight on any article in the shipment than would 
acrue under Rule 38 (C), the shipment will be charged at the rate for the 
highest classed or rated article or articles and at the highest minimum car- 
load weight for any article contained in the mixture. (Circular No. 181.) 

EXPLANATORY NOTES. 

In the "Commissioners' Standard Freight Tariff," under the class opposite 
to the distance, if it ends in (and if not, then opposite the next greater dis- 
tance), will be found the rate required. 

Example : To find the rate for 247 miles on a box of clothing weighing 100 
pounds, opposite the word "clothing" in the classification is seen its class, 1 ; 
in the freight tariff, under Class 1, opposite the next greater distance, 250 
miles, is seen the rate, 65 cents ; in the column "miles," 5 signifies five miles 
or under ; 20, twenty miles or over fifteen, and so on.

RULES OF PRACTICE BEFORE THE COMMISSION. 65 

RULES FOR COMPUTING FRACTIONS. 

When any rate in any class in the Standard Tariff is raised or lowered by 
a per cent, the following rules must be observed : 

First. — If the rate thus raised or lowered is in either of classes C, D, F, J, 
or K, the fraction of a half cent must be retained, as the following examples 
will indicate : 

Ex. 1. — Standard rate 6.5 

25 per cent added 1.6 

Total 8.1 

From which deduct fraction, leaving desired rate of 8 cents. 

Ex. 2.— Standard rate 9.5 

20 per cent added 1.9 

Total 11.4 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, the desired rate is 11.5 cents. 

Ex. 3.— Standard rate 8. 

20 per cent added 1.6 

Total 9.6 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, the desired rate is 9.5 cents. 

Ex. 4. — Standard rate 5.5 

25 per cent added 1.3 

Total 6.8 

Adding a unit instead of a fraction, the desired rate is 7 cents. 

Second. — If the rate thus raised or lowered be in any other class than those 
already mentioned, omit fraction of less than half a cent and estimate half a 
cent or more as one cent, thus : 

Ex. 1.— Standard rate 17.0 

20 per cent added 3.4 

Total 20.4 

Deducting the fraction, the desired rate is 20 cents. 

Ex. 2.— Standard rate 18.0 

20 per cent added 3.6 

Total 21.6 

Estimating the fraction as a unit, the desired rate is 22 cents. 

Third. — In making reduction, observe the same manner of placing figures 
before deducting the percentage. 

Narrow-gauge railroads, in fixing rates on all freights where a rate per car- 
load is given, will count 15,000 pounds for a car-load, and estimate their charge 
pro rata with rate allowed on standard gauge.

RULES GOVERNING ERECTION AND LOCATION OF DEPOTS. 

First.— From and after Wednesday, the 26th day of April, 1899, no change 
of freight or passenger depots or flag stations from their present location, nor 
the suspension of the sale of tickets, or the receiving or forwarding of freights 
from stations now in use for such purposes, will be permitted without the con- 
sent of this Commission published in accordance with law. 

Second. — Application for the location of depots and the construction of depot 
buildings must be filed in the North Carolina Corporation Commission ofiice, 
with all information needed for a full and proper understanding of all inter-, 
ests to be affected thereby. 

RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF 

LIVE STOCK. 

The weights given below are estimated and not actual, and are used simply 
to get the rating on live stock. To illustrate : One horse, mule, or horned ani- 
mal is estimated at the same rate as 2,000 pounds of any kind of second-class 
freight at carrier's risk and fourth-class at owner's risk. Therefore, the 
freight charges for fifty miles on one horse, mule, or horned animal is the same 
as on 2,000 pounds of second-class freight, and would be, according to the 
standard tariff, carriers' risk, 28 cents per 100 pounds, or $5, and at owner's 
risk, 20 cents per 100 pounds, or $4. 



Each. 

One horse, mule, or horned animal 2,000 lbs. 

Two horses, mules, or horned animals. 3,500 lbs. 
Each additional horse, mule, or horned 

animal 1,000 lbs. 

Stallions, jacks, and bulls 3,000 lbs. 

Yearling cattle 1,000 lbs. 

Calves and sheep 175 lbs. 



Calves and sheep, in lots of.. or more- 
Lambs

The rates on live stock as given in this tariff are based on the followin; 
maximum valuations : 

Horses and mules not over $120.00 each. 

Horned cattle not over 50.00 each. 

Stallions, jacks, and bulls not over 150.00 each. 

Fat hogs and fat calves not over 15.00 each. 

Lambs, stock hogs, stock calves, not over 5.00 each. 



Race horses, stallions, jacks, bulls, and other high-priced animals, when ship- 
pers are not willing to have the same transported at above valuations, will be 
taken only at the following rates on valuation given : 

Value from $150 to $400 add to regular rate 30 per cent. 

Value from $400 to $600 add to regular rate 40 per cent. 

Value from $600 to $800 add to regular rate 60 per cent. 

Value from $800 to $1,000 add to regular rate 100 per cent. 

Over $1,000 subject to special rate by contract. 

Live stock will be taken at the released or owner's risk rate only when con- 
tract is executed by shipper and station agent. 

Mixed shipment of cattle, hogs, lambs, etc., will be taken in car-loads at car- 
load rates for cattle, but carrier will be released from damage to animals 
caused by their own acts, or to each other, and from escape if not haltered, 
suffocation, exhaustion from heat or cold. 



RULES OF PRACTICE BEFORE THE COMMISSION. 67 

Sucking calves accompanying cows will be charged for at rate for single 
calves. 

Sucking colts accompanying mares will be charged for at double the rate of 
single calves. 

The word "calves" used in these rules and regulations applies only to calves 
under nine months old, and the word "yearling cattle" to cattle over nine 
months and under eighteen months old. 

Pigs, hogs, calves, etc., boxed, crated, or in portable pens, taken at actual 
weight, carrier's risk, first class ; owner's risk, second class. 

In no case shall the charge for less than a car-load of live stock exceed the 
charge for a car-load. 

Shippers will be expected to feed, water, and care for their stock at their 
own expense. When food is furnished by carrier, a charge will be made for 
the same, collected from consignee. 

One, two, or three cars of live stock will entitle the owner or his agent to be 
carried free to point of destination of consignment, on the train with the stock, 
to care for the same. Four to seven cars inclusive, belonging to one owner, 
two men in charge, and eight cars or more belonging to one owner, three men 
in charge, which number is the maximum number of attendants that will be 
carried free for one shipment. 

Return transportation not given to owners, agents, or attendants.

(&) Empty cars placed for loading coal at mines or mine sidings, or coke at 
coke ovens. 

(c) Empty private cars stored on carrier's or private tracks, provided such 
cars have not been placed or tendered for loading on the orders of a shipper. 

Note. — Private cars while in railroad service, whether on carrier's or private 
tracks, are subject to these Demurrage Rules to the same extent as cars of railroad 
ownership. 

(Empty private cars are in railroad service from the time they are placed by the 
carrier for loading or tendered for loading on the orders of a shipper. Private cars 
under lading are in railroad service until the lading is removed and cars are regu- 
larly released. Cars which belong to an industry performing its own switching serv- 
ice are in railroad service from the time they are placed by the industry upon desig- 
nated interchange tracks and thereby tendered to the carrier for movement. If 
such cars are subsequently returned empty, they are out of service when withdrawn 
by the industry from the interchange; if returned under load, railroad service is not 
at an end until the lading is duly removed.) 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

Cars loaded with company material for use of and consigned to the railroad in 
whose possession the cars are held are not subject to demurrage, and shall not be 
reported by agents unless specifically instructed so to do. 

Empty cars placed for loading with company material are subject to demurrage, 
unless the loading is done by the railroad company for which the material is in- 
tended and on its tracks. 

(a) Empty cars placed for loading live stock by shippers are not exempt and 
should be reported. 

Live poultry is not considered as live stock, and cars so loaded are subject to de- 
murrage. 

(c) Empty private cars stored on tracks switched by carriers, taken for loading 
without order or requisition from shipper, and without formal assignment by car- 
rier's agent, shall be recorded as placed for loading when actual loading is begun. 

Note. — Private cars belonging to an industry which does its own switching, placed 
upon an interchange track for forwarding and refused by the carrier's inspector, 
shall be released from demurrage if withdrawn by the industry from the interchange 
track within twenty-four (24) hours after rejection. 

Private cars are not in railroad service — 

(a) When loaded and unloaded on the tracks of the owner and not moved over 
the tracks of a carrier; 

(6) When placed by the carrier for loading on the tracks of the owner and re- 
fused by the inspector. 

RULE II. 

Free Time Allowed. 

Section A. — Forty-eight hours (two days) free time will be allowed for 
loading or unloading on all commodities. 

Section B. — Twenty-four hours (one day) free time be allowed — 
1. When cars are held for switching orders. 



STORAGE AND DEMURRAGE RULES. 69 

Note. — Cars held for switching orders are cars which are held by a carrier to be 
delivered to a consignee within switching limits and which when switched become 
subject to an additional charge for such switching movement. 

If a consignee wishes his car held at any break-up yard or a hold-yard before 
notification and placement, such car will be subject to demurrage. That is to say, 
the time held in the break-up yard will be included within the 48 hours of free time. 
If he wishes to exempt his cars from the imposition of demurrage, he must either 
by general orders given to the carrier or by specific orders as to incoming freight 
notify the carrier of the track upon which he wishes his freight placed, in which 
event he will have the full 48 hours free time from the time when the placement is 
made upon the track designated. 

2. When cars are held for reconsignment or reshipment in same car received. 

Note. — A reconsignment is a privilege permitted by tariff under which the origi- 
nal consignee has the right of diversion. In event of the presence of such a privi- 
lege in the tariff 24 hours free time is allowed for the exercise of that privilege by 
the consignee. A reshipment under this rule is the making of a new contract of 
shipment by which under a new rate the consignee forwards the same car to another 
destination. 

3. When cars destined for delivery to or for forwarding by a connecting line 
are held for surrender of bill of lading or for payment of lawful freight 
charges. 

4. When cars are held in transit and placed for inspection or grading. 
When cars loaded with grain or hay are so held subject to recognized official 
inspection and such inspection is made after 12 o'clock noon, 24 hours (one 
day) extra will be allowed for disposition. 

5. When cars are stopped in transit to complete loading, to partly unload 
or to partly unload and partly reload (when such privilege of stopping in 
transit is allowed in the tariffs of the carriers). 

6. On cars containing freight in bond for Customs entry and Government 
inspection. 

Section C— Cars containing freight for transhipment to vessel will be 
allowed such free time at the port as may be provided in the tariffs of the 
carriers. 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

To Rule II. — Free Time Allowed. 

Section A. — When the same car is both unloaded and reloaded, each transaction 
will be treated as independent of the other. 

Section B. — 1. Applies to cars held on carrier line for disposition. (See Section 
B, 2.) 

It also applies to cars held on the carrier line within a switching district con- 
signed to a point on a switching line within such district which cannot be received 
on account of disability of the consignee. The carrier line must in all cases give 
notice in writing to the consignee of all cars so held. Time will be computed in 
accordance with Rule III, Section B. 

Section B. — 2. Applies to cars held in transit for reconsignment or on order of 
consignor or consignee. (See Rules III, Section B, and IV, Section B.) A change 
of consignee after arrival of car at destination is not a reconsignment under these 
rules unless a diversion provided by tariff is involved. 

Section B. — 4. See last paragraph of instructions pertaining to Rule IV. — Notifi- 
cation. 

RULE III. 
i 

Computing Time. 

Note. — In computing time, Sundays and legal holidays (National, State, and Mu- 
nicipal) will be excluded. When a legal holiday falls on a Sunday, the following 
Monday will be excluded. 

Section A. — On cars held for loading, time will be computed from the first 

7 a. m. after placement on public-delivery tracks. See Rule VI (Cars for 

Loading). 



70 N. C COKPORATION COMMISSION. 

Section B. — On cars held for orders, time will be computed from the first 
7 a. m. after the day on which notice of arrival is sent to the consignee. 

Section C. — On cars held for unloading, time will be computed from the 
first 7 a. m. after placement on public-delivery tracks, and after the day on 
which notice of arrival is sent to consignee. 

Section D. — On cars to be delivered on any other than public-delivery 
tracks, time will be computed from the first 7 a. m. after actual or con- 
structive placement on such tracks. See Rule IV (Notification) and Rules V 
and VI (Constructive Placement). 

Note. — "Actual Placement" is made when a car is placed in an accessible position 
for loading or unloading or at a point previously designated by the consignor or 
consignee. 

Section E. — On cars to be delivered on interchange tracks of industrial 
plants performing their own switching service, time will be computed from 
the first 7 a. m. following actual or constructive placement on such interchange 
tracks until return thereto. See Rule IV (Notification) and Rules V and VI 
(Constructive Placement). Cars returned loaded will not be recorded re- 
leased until necessary billing instructions are given. 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

To Rule III. — Computing Time. 

Note. — The exemption of holidays does not include half holidays. 

Section B. — When orders for cars held for disposition or reconsignment are 
mailed, such orders will release cars at 7 a. m. of the date orders are received at 
the station where the freight is held, provided the orders are mailed prior to the 
date received; but orders mailed and received on the same date release cars the 
following .7 a. m. Agents will in all cases attach to orders received by mail the 
envelope inclosing such orders, that there may be on file a record of release. 

RULE IV. 

Notification. 

Section A. — Consignee shall be notified by carrier's agent in writing, or as 
otherwise agreed to by carrier and consignee, within 24 hours after arrival of 
cars and billing at destination, such notice to contain point of shipment, car 
initials and numbers, and the contents, and if transferred in transit, the 
initials and number of the original car. In case car is not placed on public- 
delivery track within 24 hours after notice of arrival has been sent, a notice 
of placement shall be given to consignee. 

Section B. — When cars are ordered stopped in transit, the party ordering 
the cars stopped shall be notified upon arrival of cars at point of stoppage. 

Section C. — Delivery of cars upon private or industrial interchange tracks, 
or written notice to consignee of readiness to so deliver, will constitute notifi- 
cation thereof to consignee. 

Section D. — In all cases where notice is required the removal of any part 
of the contents of a car by the consignee shall be considered notice thereof to 
the consignee. 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

To Rule IV. — Notification. 

Agents are cautioned that, in order to be legal, notices of the arrival of cars must 
be in writing, and must contain all of the items of information specified by this 
rule. An impression copy should be retained, and when notice is given on a postal 



STORAGE AND DEMURRAGE RULES. 71 

card the impression should be of both sides. If delivered by messenger, a receipt 
should be taken for the notice when practicable, in order to avoid possibilities of 
dispute. 

In many cases it is desirable for both consignee and carrier that notices be given 
in some other way, especially by telephone; but such notices are not legal under this 
rule except when "agreed to by carrier and consignee." In case consignees desire 
or will accept some notice other than the written notice, agents will require a writ- 
ten request from them to that effect, and this request, agreed to by the agent, must 
be retained on file in order to legalize the notice. Where the telephone form of 
notice is adopted, the agent should require the name of the receiver of the message 
when the notice is given. In the absence of specific agreements to the contrary, 
however, agents must not fail to give the regular written notice required by this 
rule. 

When address of consignee does not appear on billing and is not positively known, 
the notice of arrival must be addressed to the billed destination of the shipment and 
deposited in United States mails (in such case preferably inclosed in two-cent 
stamped envelope bearing return address, same to be preserved on file if returned). 
See Rule III, Section B and Section C. 

Attention is also directed to the fact that when cars are for delivery to public- 
team tracks, and placement is delayed for more than twenty-four (24) hours after 
notice of arrival is given, a notice of placement must also be given to the consignee, 
and the free time for unloading computed according to the notice of placement. 

At stations where grain and hay must be inspected or graded, cars being handled 
under Rule II, Section B, Paragraph 4, the consignee agreeing with the carrier in 
writing, for file at the station, to accept the bulletining of the car as due and ade- 
quate notice of arrival, the bulletin must be posted by 9 a. m. of each day, showing 
the previous twenty-four (24) hours receipts, and the free time, twenty-four (24) 
hours, allowed is to be calculated from the first 7 a. m. thereafter. Where there is 
no agreement for bulletining of cars, the free time must be calculated from the first 
7 a. m. after the day on which notice of arrival is sent to consignee. 

RULE V. 
Placing Cars for Unloading. 

Section A. — When delivery of cars consigned or ordered to any other than 
public-delivery tracks or to industrial interchange tracks cannot be made on 
account of the act or neglect of the consignee, or the inability of the con- 
signee to receive, delivery will be considered to have been made when the 
cars were tendered. The carrier's agent must give the consignee written notice 
of all cars he has been unable to deliver because of the condition of the 
private or interchange tracks, or because of other conditions attributable to 
consignee. This will be considered constructive placement. See Rule IV 
(Notification). 

Section B. — When delivery cannot be made on specially designated public- 
delivery tracks on account of such tracks being fully occupied, or from other 
cause beyond the control of the carrier, the carrier shall notify the consignee 
of its intention to make delivery at the nearest point available to the con- 
signee, naming the point. Such delivery shall be made unless the consignee 
shall before delivery indicate a preferred available point, in which case the 
preferred delivery shall be made. 

RULE VI. 

Cars for Loading. 

Section A. — Cars for loading will be considered placed when such cars are 
actually placed or held on orders of the consignor. In the latter case the 
agent must give the consignor written notice of all cars which he has been 



72 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

unable to place because of condition of the private track or because of other 
conditions attributable to the consignor. This will be considered constructive 
placement. See Rule III, Section A (Computing Time). 

Section B. — When empty cars, placed for loading on orders, are not used, 
demurrage will be charged from the first 7 a. m. after placing or tender until 
released, with no time allowance. 

RULE VII. 

Demurrage Charge. 

After the expiration of the free time allowed, a charge of $1 per car per day, 
or fraction of a day, will be made until car is released. 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

To Rule VII. — Demurrage Charge. 

(a) Charges accruing under these rules must be collected in the same manner 
and with the same regularity and promptness as other transportation charges, and 
agents will in like manner be held responsible for same. 

(&) Freight upon which charges have accrued under these rules shall not be re- 
moved from railroad premises until charges thereon have been paid. When con- 
signor or consignee refuses to pay, agent will hold freight until payment is made 
and continue to charge until freight is removed; or, at his option, may send freight 
to public warehouses or yards, where the same will be held subject to storage 
charges and all other charges. 

(c) When cars are detained on private or specifically designated tracks for un- 
loading beyond the time allowed, and demurrage charges are not promptly paid, 
agent must, upon advice to that effect from the Demurrage manager, after giving 
not less than five (5) days written notice, decline to switch cars to private or spe- 
cifically designated tracks for such parties, and thereafter tender freight from pub- 
lic-team tracks and collect all charges before delivery, until satisfactory guaranty 
is given that demurrage rules will be complied with. 

(d) Charges that accrue while cars are held for loading, for receipt of billing in- 
structions, or for reconsignment or distribution orders, will be collected by agents 
of the forwarding line when such shipments are ordered to points within the switch- 
ing limits. When charges accrue on shipments ordered or destined to points beyond 
switching limits, such charges should be collected by the agent of the forwarding 
line. Such charges may be billed forward as advances, provided the charges are 
guaranteed in writing and entered on the shipping tickets and bills of lading and 
exhibited on the waybills as "Demurrage Charges, Advanced and Guaranteed." 

When demurrage charges accrue on cars held in transit by request of consignor 
or consignee, as agents can neither enter the charges on bills of lading nor obtain 
guarantee from consignor or consignee without unnecessary delay to the cars, the 
charges must either be billed forward as advances or separate bills made and 
charges collected from the party ordering the cars held. 

RULE VIII. 

Claims. 

No demurrage charges shall be collected under these rules for detention of 
cars through causes named below. Demurrage charges assessed or collected 
under such conditions shall be promptly canceled or refunded by the carrier. 

Causes. 
Section A. — Weather interference. 

1. When the condition of the weather during the prescribed free time is 
such as to make it impossible to employ men or teams in loading or unloading, 



STORAGE AND DEMURRAGE RULES. 73 

or impossible to place freight in cars, or to move it from cars, without serious 
injury to the freight, the free time shall be extended until a total of 48 hours 
free from such weather interference shall have been allowed. 

2. When shipments are frozen while in transit so as to prevent unloading 
during the prescribed free time. This exemption shall not include shipments 
which are tendered to consignee in condition to unload. Under this rule con- 
signees will be required to make diligent effort to unload such shipments. 

3. When, because of high water or snowdrifts, it is impossible to get to cars 
for loading or unloading during the prescribed time. 

This rule shall not absolve a consignor or consignee from liability for demur- 
rage if others similarly situated and under the same conditions are able to 
load or unload cars. 

Section B. — Bunching. 

1. Cars for loading. — When, by reason of delay or irregularity of the car- 
rier in filling orders, cars are bunched and placed for loading in accumulated 
numbers in excess of daily orders, the shipper shall be allowed such free time 
for loading as he would have been entitled to had the cars been placed for 
loading as ordered. 

2. Cars for unloading or reconsigning. — When, as the result of the act or 
neglect of any carrier, cars destined for one consignee, at one point, are 
bunched at originating point, in transit, or at destination, and delivered by 
the carrier line in accumulated numbers in excess of daily shipments, the con- 
signee shall be allowed such free time as he would have been entitled to had 
the cars been delivered in accordance with the daily rate of shipment. Claim 
to be presented to carrier's agent within fifteen (15) days. 

Section C. — Demand of overcharge. 

When the carrier's agent demands the payment of transportation charges in 
excess of tariff authority. 

Section D. — Delayed or improper notice by carrier. — When notice has been 
given in substantial compliance with the requirements as specified in these 
rules, the consignee shall not thereafter have the right to call in question the 
sufficiency of such notice unless within 48 hours from 7 a. m. following the 
day on which notice is sent he shall serve upon the delivering carrier a full 
written statement of his objections to the sufficiency of such notice. 

1. When claim is made that a mailed notice has been delayed, the postmark 
thereon shall be accepted as indicating the date of the notice. 

2. When a notice is mailed by carrier on Sunday, a legal holiday, or after 
3 p. m. on other days (as evidenced by the postmark thereon), the consignee 
shall be allowed 5 hours additional free time, provided he shall mail or send to 
the carrier's agent, within the first 24 hours of free time, written advice that 
the notice had not been received until after the free time had begun to run ; in 
case of failure on the part of consignee so to notify carrier's agent, no addi- 
tional free time shall be allowed. 

Section E. — Railroad errors which prevent proper tender or delivery. 
Section F. — Delay by "United States Customs. — Such additional free time 
shall- be allowed as has been lost through such delay. 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

To Rule VIII.— Claims. 

Section A. — 1. When a consignor or consignee claims exemption under this rule, 
agents must obtain a written statement from him to the effect that the conditions 
were such as are set forth in the rule. 



74 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

Section B. — 2. When claim is made for exemption from demurrage on account of 
bunching of cars for unloading or reconsigning, as provided in this rule, agents will 
require written statement of all cars, with date and point of shipment of each, as 
evidenced by the bills of lading, if necessary, and forward same to the Demurrage 
manager, with report showing exemption demanded on account of such bunching. 

Sections C and E.— When demurrage should not be collected under these sections, 
agents will make report to the Demurrage manager, together with copy of billing 
and all information in their possession, showing where the error occurred. 

RULE IX. 

Average Agreement. 

When a shipper or receiver enters into the following agreement, the charge 
for detention to cars, provided for by Rule VII, on all cars held for loading 
or unloading by such shipper or receiver shall be computed on the basis of 
the average time of detention to all such cars released during each calendar 
month, such average detention to be computed as follows : 

Section A. — A credit of one day will be allowed for each car released within 
the first 24 hours of free time. A debit of one day will be charged for each 
24 hours or fraction thereof that a car is detained beyond the first 48 hours 
of free time. In no case shall more than one day's credit be allowed on any 
one car, and in no case shall more than five (5) days credit be applied in 
cancellation of debits accruing on any one car, making a maximum of seven 
(7) days that any car may be held free ; this to include Sundays and holidays. 

Section B. — At the end of the calendar month the total number of days 
credited will be deducted from the total number of days debited, and $1 per 
day charged for the remainder. If the credits equal or exceed the debits, no 
charge will be made for the detention of the cars, and no payment will be 
made to shippers or receivers on account of such excess of credits, nor shall 
the credits in excess of the debits of any one month be considered in comput- 
ing the average detention for another month. 

Section C. — A shipper or receiver who elects to take advantage of this 
average agreement shall not be entitled to cancellation or refund of demur- 
rage charges under Section A, Paragraphs 1 and 3, or Section B of Rule VIII. 

Section D. — A shipper or receiver who elects to take advantage of this 
average agreement may be required to give sufficient security to the carrier 
for the payment of balances against him at the end of each month.

STORAGE RULES. 

Storage and demurrage may be assessed by railroad companies on all freight 
received for delivery in car-load lots or in less than car-load lots if not re- 
moved in conformity with the following rules and regulations : 

RULE 1. 

No storage charges, however, shall in any case be allowed unless notice of 
the arrival of goods has been given to the owner or consignee thereof by the 
railroad company, and it shall be the duty of such railroad company to give 
prompt notice to the consignee of the arrival of goods, together with the con- 
tents, weight, and amount of freight charges due thereon as shown by waybill, 
and when goods or freight of any kind, in car-load consignments, said notice 
must contain letters or initials and number of the car. Notice shall be given 
by delivering same in writing in person, or by leaving same at consignee's 
place of business or by depositing it in the postoffice. 

RULE 2. 

For storage of package freight and all freight less than car-load, unloaded 
in depot or warehouse, which is not removed by the owner thereof from the 
custody of the railroad company within forty-eight hours (not including Sun- 
days and legal holidays), a charge of storage for each day or fraction of a day 
that such consignment may remain in the custody of the carrier of one cent 
per hundred pounds per day, with minimum charge of five cents for any one 
package or lot for any one consignee, may be made ; but not more than one 
dollar per day for any one consignment not in excess of a car-load. 

EXCEPTION TO RULE 2: 

Free time for storage on account of distance will be allowed as follows: On 
freights destined to the residence or place of business of a consignee from five to 
twelve miles from depot, five (5) days; and for distance over twelve miles seven (7) 
days. 

RULE 3. 

When consignors ship goods consigned to themselves, or order, it shall be 
the duty of the railroad company to give legal notice to such consignees or 
persons to whom shipping directions order delivery. This notice may be 
addressed by mail to the consignee at point of delivery, and storage will begin 
as in other cases of notice by mail ; and the mailing of such notice shall be 
sufficient notice in such cases, whether the consignee actually received the 
same or not. 

RULE 4. 

The time allowed for removing freight before storage or demurrage charges 
apply will be computed from 7 o'clock a. m. of the day following date of notice 
(Sundays and legal holidays excepted). 



76 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

RULE 5. 

Whenever the weather during the period of free time is so severe, inclement 
or rainy that it is impracticable to secure means of removal or loading of 
freight, or where from the nature of the goods removal or loading would cause 
injury or damage, such time shall be added to the free period, and no storage 
charges shall be allowed for such additional time. This rule applies to the 
state of the weather during business hours. 

RULE 6. 

Brought Forward from Circular No. 36 as Rule 8. 

When any railroad company fails to deliver freights at the depot or to place 
loaded cars at an accessible place for unloading within forty-eight hours (not 
including Sundays and legal holidays), computed from 7 o'clock a. m. the day 
after the arrival of same, the shipper or consignee shall be paid one dollar per 
day for each day or fraction of a day said delivery is so delayed : Provided, 
the railroad company may require the payment of freight before delivery. 

RULE 7. 

Refusal of Consignee to Accept Shipments of Freight. 

(Rule 15, Circular No. 115.) 

Where a consignee shall give to the delivering carrier notice of his refusal 
to accept a shipment of freight properly tendered in pursuance of the bill of 
lading, the delivering carrier shall give to the consignor legal notice of such 
refusal, and if the consignor fails within three days thereafter to give direc- 
tion for the disposition of such goods, he shall thenceforth become liable to 
such carrier for the usual storage charges, to the same extent, and at the same 
rate, as such charges are now, under like circumstances, by the rules of this 
Commission, imposed upon consignees who neglect or refuse, after notice of 
arrival, to remove freight of like character. 

And where a consignee of freight either in car-loads or less than car-loads 
shall fail or neglect to remove such freight within six days after the expiration 
of free time, then the carrier shall, through the agent at point of shipment, 
so notify the shipper, unless the consignee has signified his acceptance of the 
property. Said notice may either be served personally or given by mail. 

No such notice to the consignor, however, shall be required of a carrier 
company where goods are shipped in less than car-load lots, unless such goods, 
or the packages containing the same, or waybill, shall legibly bear the name 
and address of the consignor thereof. 

A consignee who has once refused to accept a consignment of goods shall 
not thereafter be entitled to receive the same, except upon the payment of all 
charges for storage which would otherwise have accrued. 

RULE 8. 

The Commission reserves the right to hear and grant application to suspend 
the operation of these rules upon complaint of abuse, or whenever justice shall 
demand this course.

CLASSIFICATION. 



The reduced release rates specified in this Classification will apply only on 
property shipped subject to conditions of the carrier's bill of lading. Prop- 
erty carried not subject to the conditions of the carrier's bill of lading will 
be at the carrier's liability, limited only as provided by common law, and by 
the laws of North Carolina in so far as they apply; property thus carried 
will be charged at the higher rates provided herein to apply on property not 
released. 

Where a released rate is specified in this Classification the rate will be 10 
per cent higher than the released rate (subject to a minimum increase of 1 
cent per hundred pounds) if the shipper or his agent declines to accept the 
conditions of release carried in standard bill of lading (his attention being 
called to it by carrier's agent). (Cir. 190.)

Rules governing transportation of high explosives: 



High explosives, such as atlas, hercules, giant, 
dittmar, commercial, setna, hecla, and other nitro- 
glycerine powders; dynamite, nitro-glycerine, gly- 
noin oil, nitroleum, blasting oil, nitrated oil or pow- 
der mixed with any such oil, or fiber saturated with 
any such articles or substances, will be received for 
transportation only at steamship or railroad com- 
panies' option, only under the following conditions: 

First. — Shipments to be packed in strong boxes, 
not too large to be readily handled by one person, 
and each package to be plainly marked "Explosive," 
"Dangerous," on top and on one side or on one end. 

Second. — It is understood that in these articles 
the nitro-glycerine is thoroughly absorbed in char- 
coal, sawdust, infusorial earth, wood fiber, carbonate 
of magnesia, or other similar substances, and that 
the amount of the nitro-glycerine is such that the 
temperature on the hottest summer day will not 
occasion any leakage; also that the powder formed 
by that absorbent material and the nitro-glycerine is 
always made up into cartridges and never put into 
the boxes in bulk. Should any package show out- 
ward signs of any oily stain, or other indication that 
absorption is not perfect, or that the amount of nitro- 
glycerine is greater than the absorbent can carry, the 
packages must be refused in every instance, and must 
not be allowed to remain on the property of the car- 
rier. 

Third. — Nitrate or other explosive preparations 
not in accordance with the above specifications (ex- 
cept ordinary black powder) will in no case be received 
for shipment. 

Fourth. — Shipments must be so loaded that boxes 
will lie bottom side down, it being understood that 
the cartridges are so placed in the boxes that they 
will lie on their sides and never on their ends when 
so loaded. The boxes must be so placed in car that 
they cannot fall to the floor under any circumstances. 

Fifth. — Shipments of common black powder may 
be received if packed in good, substantial iron or 
wooden kegs, packages not to exceed 150 pounds in 
weight, unless for export, when larger packages will 
be received. 

Sixth. — In no case will percussion caps, explod- 
ers, safety squibs, fulminators, friction matches, or 
any other articles of like nature be loaded in same 
car with any of the above explosives. There cannot 
be too great care exercised in this matter. 



Seventh. — Safety-fuse will be received for ship- 
ment at any time it is offered, and the restrictions in 
regard to shipping powder do not apply to it. 

Eighth. — As special powder cars are not in gen- 
eral service among roads, agents must know that none 
of the above explosive substances are loaded at their 
stations in old cars, having loose boards or cracks in 
the roof or sides. Cars for carrying these explosives 
must be first-class in every respect; must be tight 
everywhere, and must have doors that can be closely 
shut, leaving no cracks for sparks to get in. When 
explosives are carried in full car-loads, the doors must 
be stripped, except when the cars are equipped with 
the new Wagner car doors, which must never be 
stripped. Agents must refuse to receive from con- 
necting lines cars loaded with explosives, unless the 
requirements of this section have been complied with. 

Ninth. — Every car containing any of the above 
explosive substances, either full car-load or small 
package, must be plainly marked on both sides, 
"Powder — Handle Carefully," so that those having 
charge of it will not do anything ignorantly to incur 
danger. This should be done by the shipper of full 
car-loads, and by the agent when packages are loaded 
in car at his station. Cars containing explosives re- 
ceived from connecting lines, if not marked when 
received, must be marked by the agent at the con- 
necting point. Agents will be held strictly responsi- 
ble that no car containing explosives leaves their 
stations until it is properly marked. 

Tenth. — Agents must notify conductors when- 
ever a car containing explosives is to be taken from 
their stations; and conductors must not take from 
any station or siding any car known to contain ex- 
plosive substances unless rules Eight and Nine have 
been complied with, and such cars must be placed 
in their train as near the middle as possible. 

Eleventh. — Agents should notify all the ship- 
pers in their neighborhood of the requirements. 

Twelfth. — The law provides heavy penalties, 
both to shippers and common carriers, for a viola- 
tion of these rules, and agents and shippers should 
be careful to see that such shipments are put up, 
marked, and forwarded only under their proper names 
and in accordance with these provisions.

Household goods and old furniture, subject to the following rules, viz. 



1 — Each article must be plainly marked or tagged. 

2 — Bundles of bedding, trunks of clothing, house- 
hold goods or similar articles (not furniture) will 
not be received for transportation unless packed. 
Chests of similar articles must be strapped or 
securely nailed. This does not apply to house- 
hold goods, C. L. 

3 — Any agent receiving this class of freight contrary 
to the foregoing rules will be charged with such 
expense (for boxing or transportation) as may 
be necessary to forward goods to destination with- 
out delay. 

4 — Bills of lading and way-bills must designate char- 
acter and number of packages. 

5 — These instructions apply to old and second-hand 
furniture, clothing, bedding, etc.; not to new arti- 
cles. 



6 — Shipments designated to points beyond the South- 
eastern Freight Association territory must be 
released and prepaid, and the original release 
attached to way-bill accompanying the shipment. 

7 — In all cases where limitation of value is expressed 
in the classification, it must be written out or 
stamped in full upon bills of lading, and shippers 
must be required to accept in writing the limi- 
tations expressed. Agents must respect this rule 
and require acceptance by the shipper. 

8 — The classification of "household goods and old 
furniture" will not cover shipments of second- 
hand furniture, shipped by furniture dealers, or 
for sale. Such shipments must be charged for 
at regular furniture rates.

When less than aforesaid minimum car-loads are ship- 



ped, L. C. L. rates will be charged. In no case, how- 
ever, will less than a car-load from one consignor to 
one consignee and destination on same day be charged 
more than for a full car-load. 

Transportation companies do not furnish tank cars. 
When they are furnished by shippers, transportation 
companies will pay three-fourths cent per mile run 
each way, and will return the empty tank to point of 
shipment without charge. 

Shipments of above articles at the rates authorized 
are entirely at owner's risk of leakage and loss or dam- 
age by fire. 

Petroleum and its products in tank cars will be deliv- 
ered only when consigned to parties at points at which 
they have proper unloading and storage facilities; and 
when shipments in tank cars are consigned to parties 
who have not such facilities the shipment will be re- 
turned to the shippers at their risk and expense.

Cotton-seed oil, in barrels, governed by the following rules, viz. 



First. — Inasmuch as the gross tare and net weight of 
each barrel is plainly marked on the head of the barrel, 
when shipments are loaded at the mills, agents at ship- 
ping points will require shippers to load marked head 
up, ascertaining the gross weight from each barrel and 
billing accordingly. 

Second. — In cases where shippers fail to so load, 
agents will carefully weigh on track scales and bill at 
weight so ascertained. 

Third. — When shipments are hauled to depot, the 
gross weight must be ascertained from each barrel. 



Fourth. — In cases where billing fails to show ship- 
ments to have been weighed at point of origin or in 
transit, receiving lines must in all cases bill at weights 
ascertained in accordance with Rules 1 and 2. 

If there are no track scales at the junction points, 
weights must be ascertained at destination. By des- 
tination is meant the point where final delivery is ef- 
fected or delivery is made to connecting lines at the 
gateways of this association. 

Fifth. — The minimum C. L. weight of cotton-seed 
oil in barrels will be 24,000 pounds.

MONEY CLASSIFICATION. 



A.— (1) Packages containing money, bonds, or other 
securities must be received for transportation only 
when delivered at the office by shippers. Shipments 
of coin or bullion too heavy to be carried by hand may 
be called for by wagon, but a representative of the 
shipper must accompany and retain custody of the 
shipment until delivered by shipper at the express 
company's office. 

(2) A receipt of the prescribed form must be given 
for all matter received. Shipments must not be received 
for transportation at the rates named in the money 
classification unless the value is declared by shipper 
and marked by him upon the package. 

(3) Packages of money, bonds, or other securities 
in amounts of $500.00 or over must not be received for 
transportation unless the person who delivers the pack- 
age to the company shall at the time of said delivery, 
write his name in ink on the package. 

(4) The charge on any shipment carried at rates 
established by the Money Classification must be 
a multiple of 5, and when in computing charges 
the result is not a multiple of 5, the next higher multi- 
ple of 5 must be charged. This rule will not apply to 
nickel or copper coins — see Item C (2). 

(5) When special rates on currency, coin, bullion, 
or securities are named they remove the application of 
the classification rating on the same commodity and 
between the same points. 

(6) When "Currency" is mentioned in the following 
articles it means "Paper Currency," and when "Cur- 
rency Rate" is mentioned it means "Scale R" or "Spe- 
cial Rates on Currency" where issued; when "Merchan- 
dise Rate" is mentioned it means the merchandise rate 
applicable to a merchandise shipment of not more than 
100 pounds. 

(7) Unless otherwise provided, a minimum charge 
applies on a single shipment for each company carrying, 
except that between common points the minimum will 
be the same as if carried through by one company. 

(8) When charges are prepaid, the package and way- 
bill must be marked "Prepaid $ " When so 

marked or way-billed, package must be delivered with- 
out collection of charges from the consignee, and any 
undercharge expense on or charged against the for- 
warding agent, to be collected from the shipper, in ac- 
cordance with the instructions of each company. If 
charges are paid in part, notation to that effect must 
appear on the package and on the way-bill. 

B. — (1) Unless otherwise provided, graduated charges 
shown in Scales S or U must be assessed on shipments 
of less than $1,000.00, and where the rate per $1,000.00 
applicable to a shipment is not shown in those scales, 
the next higher rate must be used for ascertaining the 
charge, which must not be more than for $1,000.00 at 
the rate applicable. 

(2) When shipments, subject to graduated charges, 
under Scales S and U, are carried by two or more com- 
panies, and the shipping point or destination is an ex- 
clusive office, the charge must be the graduate under 
the applicable rate per $1,000.00 based upon the through 
merchandise rate per 100 pounds to destination, via the 
transfer point shown in originating company's tariff 
which produces the lowest through rate; when the 
through rate is less than $2.00 per $1,000.00 the minimum 
through charge is 50 cents, unless the graduate under 
rate of $2.00 per $1,000.00 is less.

(3) Collections. The charge for the collections and 
remittance of proceeds of notes, checks, drafts, bills, or 
accounts, upon which no outward charge was made from 
the point of origin to the point where the collection is 
made, must be one-third more than the charge provided 
for paid C. O. D.'s in Item F (2). 

(4) Remittances for paid C. O. D.'s or paid collections 
must be made by means of money orders, or by check 
provided for that purpose, issued by the agent of the 
company making the collection; the money order or 
check to be made payable to the order of the shipper of 
the original C. O. D. or collection, and the money order 
or check enclosed in or accompanied by the original C. 
O. D. or collection envelope, must be forwarded through 
the United States mail addressed to the shipper. 

(5) The charge for collecting and remitting paid C. 
O. D.'s or collections as shown above must be deducted 
from the amount collected, and the money order or 
check made for the difference, unless, by shipper's in- 
structions, return charges are to be collected from the 
consignee, in which event the money order or check 
must be drawn for the full amount. 

(6) Paid C. O. D.'s or collections containing currency 
and signed contracts, notes, leases, mortgages, or re- 
deemed pawn tickets must be charged for on the ag- 
gregate amount of currency and face value of the con- 
tract, note, lease, mortgage, or redeemed pawn ticket, 
same as if all currency. When instructions are given 
by shipper to deliver a shipment upon execution of a 
signed contract, or to accept a note, check, or draft in 
payment of a C. O. D. or collection of any character, 
charge must be based on the face value of the paper. 
Item 3 of the foregoing will govern the charge on such 
remittances in payment of collections on which no out- 
ward charge was made. Collections with instructions

the collection at once, and when such partial payments 
are returned, charge shall be made only on the amount 
enclosed. A bank book or other deposit book, when 
accompanying a draft for collection, may be forwarded 
and returned without additional charge. Remittances

such as are referred to in this item must be enclosed in 
the original C. O. D. or collection envelope, sealed and 
regularly way-billed, and when, by direction of the 
shipper, return charges are collected of the payor of 
such C. O. D.'s or collections, they must be way-billed 
prepaid. In no case must the return charge be enclosed 
in the envelope. 

(7) For advancing the purchase price of goods con- 
tained in a shipment or for advancing any sum of money 
on a shipment, the same charge must be made as is 
charged for the collection and transmission of a C. O. D. 
of equal amount. This does not apply to transporta- 
tion charges advanced to other carriers, or for customs, 
fees, or duties. The purchase price of a shipment will 
not be advanced unless advice has been received from 
the agent at destination that the consignee has depos- 
ited the amount of the purchase price with him, or has 
given sufficient guarantee that the shipment will be 
accepted and paid for on arrival. The purchase price 
of any shipment will not be advanced to a connecting 
company. 

(8) Collections must not be accepted unless agents 
are assured of the identity and responsibility of the 
senders. 

(9) Collections must not be received more than 
twenty days before due, unless shipper states in writ- 
ing that the payor has signified his intention to pay the 
obligation upon presentation, or within twenty days. 
Such paper, if unpaid at the expiration of the time in- 
dicated, must be returned to shipper. All collections 
returned unpaid must contain a memorandum fully 
explaining why payment was not made. Collections 
must not be held more than 30 days after receipt at 
destination. 

(10) Notes, endorsed drafts, or other papers requir- 
ing protest must not be received for collection. 

(11) Collections received by mail must be returned 
to the agent at the point from which the collection was 
mailed. 

(12) Collections must not be made unless the paper 
for collection has been received in a collection envelope, 
regularly way-billed. 

(13) Bonds, coupons, or other securities, mortgages, 
or deeds, legal or other valuable papers for collection, 
must be enclosed in sealed envelopes and endorsed with 
description and value of contents, and marked C. O. D. 
$ (the amount to be collected). If con- 
signee is to be permitted to examine the papers before 
payment, instructions to that effect must be marked 
on package by the shippers, who must release the ex- 
press company, on the company's form provided for 
that purpose, from all loss resulting from such exami- 
nation. 

The outward charge must be as required by the 
classification on similar paper not sent for collection. 
The charge on the amount collected and transmitted 
must be the charge on a paid C. O. D. of like amount. 
If returned unpaid the same charge must be made for 
the returned shipment as applied when originally for- 
warded, the outward charge being shown as expense 
on the way-bill and package. If any service is to be 
performed by the express company in exchanging prom- 
issory notes or other obligations, in examination of 
titles, or any other service beyond the usual C. O. D. 
service, the business must not be accepted except under 
special contract authorized by the proper officer. 

(14) Notes, checks, drafts, bills, or accounts for col- 
lection must, when forwarded, be way-billed P. O. R. 
(Pay on Return). Such collections, returned uncol- 
lected, must be charged 25 cents each; when carried 
by two or more companies, and point of origin or des- 
tination is an exclusive office, add 15 cents for each 
additional participating company. 

(15) Drafts sent for acceptance, or notes in blank, 
sent for signature: Way-bill P. O. R. (Pay on Return), 
and charge currency rate on the face value of the paper 
when returned. If returned without acceptance or 
signature, charge 25 cents; when carried by two or more 



companies and point of origin or destination is an 
exclusive office, add 15 cents for each additional par- 
ticipating company. 

(16) For obtaining from consignee receipts for de- 
livery of packages and returning such receipts to the 
shipper, a charge of 10 cents for each receipt must be 
made; when carried by two companies, the charge of 
10 cents is to be divided equally. 

(17) When the proceeds of a collection are, by order 
of the shipper, deposited in a bank by the express 
company at the place where collection is made, evi- 
dence of such deposit must be returned to shipper in 
the collection envelope and charges assessed at 40 cents 
per $1,000.00 on the proceeds of the collection, minimum 
charge 50 cents. 

G. — (1) Bills of lading, for matter shipped by freight 
lines, when enclosed in sealed envelopes and forwarded 
as C. O. D., with privilege of examination, must be 
charged for at merchandise graduated charge, mini- 
mum 30 cents, and in addition the valuation charge 
under Rule 11. 

When carried by two or more companies, and the 
shipping point or destination is an exclusive office, 
the minimum is 25 cents for each company carrying. 

The charge for returning the money will be the same 
as for a paid C. O. D. of like amount. If the amount 
is not collected, the bill of lading must be returned 
without additional charge. 

Bills of lading covering shipments of liquor must be 
refused. 

(2) When a bill of lading sent by express is by 
shipper's orders exchanged for a new bill of lading, the 
additional charge for securing the latter and returning 
it to the shipper must be the same amount as was 
charged for the original bill of lading. 

(3) When not sealed, or when accompanied by in- 
structions requiring agents, before delivering the bill 
of lading, to obtain signatures to notes, or to place 
mortgages for record, secure insurance, or to render 
other service than simply collecting the amount of the 
C. O. D. and returning the papers to the consignee, 
the outward charge must be $1.00, prepaid, to be 
divided equally between the companies carrying; the 
return charge, whether carried by one or more com- 
panies, must be, when the amount of notes or mort- 
gages is $100.00 or less, three per cent thereof; when 
the amount exceeds $100.00, one per cent thereof, with 
a minimum charge of $3.00. When carried by more 
than one company, the company executing the com- 
mission shall be entitled to two-thirds of the return 
charge. If the consignee declines to execute the papers, 
and they are returned in original condition to shipper, 
the bill of lading must be returned without additional 
charge. 

(4) Where goods have been shipped by freight and 
a bill of lading for same sent by express C. O. D., the 
notice of nonpayment shall not be given before the 
arrival of the goods at destination. 

H. Legal and other papers in manuscript, including 
checks payable to order, canceled vouchers, canceled 
checks, canceled drafts, and canceled certificates of 
stock, must be charged the same as for a merchandise 
package of the same weight and value. Canceled 
coupons must be charged currency rate on the declared 
value, and if the weight exceeds one pound merchandise 
graduated charge on the weight must be assessed 
additionally.

ets for redemption of goods or renewal must be required 
to state the value of the goods for which the ticket was 
issued, the amount of which must be entered in the 
receipt and a memorandum of such value must be 
attached to the ticket.

goods or renewal of the ticket, together with the pawn 
tickets and memorandum of value, must be enclosed 
in a sealed envelope, with total value of money and 
goods for which the ticket was issued marked thereon,

addressed to the agent of the company at the point 
where goods were pledged and charged for at currency 
rates prepaid; tickets from one shipper to be presented 
to different pawnbrokers in the same city may be en- 
closed in the same envelope. 

(3) The goods, when redeemed and returned, must 
be charged for at regular rates according to classifica- 
tion and, in addition, a charge of not less than 25 cents 
for each lot redeemed, to cover expense of packing or 
handling.

rates must be charged upon the value of the goods for 
which the ticket was issued. 

J. — (1) Orders to secure goods at another office with 
or without instructions to accept money in lieu of the 
goods, must be way-billed P. O. R. (Pay on Return).

order must be returned within ten days wdth charges 
of 25 cents. When carried by two or more companies,

warded does not share in the earnings on the goods or 
money because of their being reforwarded to an office 
reached by other companies' lines, the order, when 
complied with, shall be returned to the office from 
which it was sent, subject to a charge of 25 cents, which 
shall accrue to the company through whom the order 
was given. 

(4) The above rule does not apply to orders for the 
purchase of goods. 

K. Undelivered mail matter. Orders from shippers 
requiring agents at other points to call upon post- 
masters for undelivered mail matter consigned to 
various addresses, to be re wrapped and returned to 
the original shipper, must not be accepted. 

L. When taxes have been remitted by express and 
paid by the express company to the official authorized 
to receive them, the tax receipt upon its return must 
be charged for at currency rate upon its face value.

remitted by express to pay taxes, the outward charge 
must be made only upon the amount of currency or 
coin enclosed. The new tax receipt obtained for return

DECISIONS AND ADJUSTMENT OF COMPLAINTS. 



ROCKINGHAM RAILROAD COMPANY v. SEABOARD AIR LINE 
RAILWAY— OPERATION OF INTERLOCKING PLANTS. 



This cause was heard on June 20, 1912, after due notice to all parties. 
Copy of the evidence offered by the parties is on file with other papers in 
the case. 

After full consideration of the allegations and the evidence, the Corporation 
Commission is of opinion that the plan now used in operating the interlocking 
plants at the junctions of the Rockingham Railroad and the Seaboard Air 
Line Railway at or near Rockingham, North Carolina, are such as to afford 
reasonable and proper protection to the traveling public and employees of 
the said railroads. 

The Commission will not pass upon the rights of the parties arising out 
of their contract, as chapter 197. Public Laws 1911, is construed to confer 
the power of requiring such method of operation as will protect the public, 
whether there is or is not any contract for the operation of interlocking 
plants by the railroad companies. It is. therefore, 

Ordered, That this proceeding be dismissed. 

Edward L. Travis, 

January 10, 1913. Chairman.

tofore made in this cause, and upon full consideration thereof, it is

Edward L. Travis, 
January 10, 1913. Chairman. 



CITIZENS OF WELDON v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD 
COMPANY— UNION PASSENGER STATION AT WELDON.

made by the Commission, it is 

Ordered, That the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company erect on its plat- 
form at Weldon, at the location indicated to the railroad representatives at 
the time of the investigation, two (2) additional waiting-rooms to be of suffi- 
cient size and of comfortable and appropriate design, according to plans to 
be submitted to this Commission for its approval. 



254 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

It is further Ordered, That the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company 
also erect along its elevated track at the Weldon station about three hundred

the plans for these improvements within thirty days. 

Edward L. Travis, 

February 26, 1913. Chairman. 



CITIZENS OF BEARD v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY 
—ESTABLISHMENT OF FREIGHT AND PASSENGER STATION. 

Lee, Commissioner: Petition in this cause was filed by A. W. Walker and 
W. A. Beard in behalf of themselves and other citizens of Beard, North 
Carolina. 

The case was heard at the office of the Commission in Raleigh, North Caro- 
lina, on the 14th day of February, 1913. 

Sinclair & Dye appeared for petitioners and George M. Rose, Esq., for 
respondent. 

Beard is a flag station on the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, about 6 miles 
north of Fayetteville. Petitioners pray that the Atlantic Coast Line Rail- 
road be required to establish and maintain a regular freight and passenger 
station at Beard, and stop passenger trains Nos. 80 and 89 at said station. 

It appears from the evidence in this case that there are more than 1,000 
people within a radius of 3 miles of Beard that would be served by this sta- 
tion, and that the business done, under present conditions, amounts to about 
$3,500 per year. 

The Commission is of opinion that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad should 
furnish suitable facilities and accommodations for its patrons at this point: 
It is, therefore, 

Ordered, that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company provide suitable 
depot accommodations, together with an agent, at Beard, and that passenger 
trains Nos. 80 and 89 stop at said station ; and that these facilities be pro- 
vided within ninety days from the date of this order. 

March 22, 1913. 



VIRGINIA-CAROLINA CHEMICAL COMPANY v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY 

COMPANY. 

The plaintiff complains that the defendant refuses to shift and place for 
it a car of fertilizer, S. A. L. Car No. 24724, from Wilmington, N. C, to 
Raleigh, N. C. 

Defendant's warehouse is located on a spur or side-track of the defendant 
company's line in the city of Raleigh, this spur or side-track being habitually 
used by the plaintiff from which to load and unload freight into and out of 
its said warehouse. 

Defendant contends that it is entitled to charge for placing of this car as 
for the minimum 5-mile haul. 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 255 

The Commission is of the opinion that, under the circumstances in this 
case, the said car should be switched and placed by the defendant for the 
plaintiff at the usual switching charge of $2. It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the defendant, Southern Railway Company, forthwith switch 
and place the said car alongside the warehouse of the plaintiff for unloading 
at the said usual switching charge of $2. Edward l ^^ 

April 2, 1913. ' Chairman. 



IN THE MATTER OF GREENLEAF JOHNSON LUMBER COMPANY, A 
LUMBER CORPORATION— PETITION FOR LICENSE TO CARRY 
FREIGHT AND CHARGE THEREFOR. 

In the above entitled matter, it appearing to the Commission that the 
Greenleaf Johnson Lumber Company is a corporation engaged in the business 
of manufacturing logs into sawed lumber, and that the said Greenleaf Johnson 
Lumber Company has built a logging road, intersecting the Seaboard Air Line 
Railway at Vaughan, Warren County, and extending southwestwardly through 
Warren County a distance of about 22 miles into Franklin County, at or near 
Wood's Store, in said county ; and it further appearing that the said Green- 
leaf Johnson Lumber Company has petitioned this .Commission, according to 
the provisions of chapter 160 of the Acts of the General Assembly of 1911, 
for authority to transport commodities other than its own over and upon its 
said logging road, and to charge therefor reasonable rates, to be approved by 
this Commission : Now, therefore, it is 

Ordered by the Corporation Commission, That the said Greenleaf Johnson 
Lumber Company be and it is hereby authorized to transport over and upon 
its said logging road all kinds of commodities other than its own, except saw- 
logs and sawed lumber, and to charge therefor the rates in accordance with 
freight tariff and classification which has this day been approved by the Com- 
mission for this line of road, subject to such changes and modifications as 
may from time to time be made or approved by this Commission. 

Edward L. Travis, 

April 3, 1913. Chairman. 



DURHAM AND SOUTH CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY v. SEABOARD 
AIR LINE RAILWAY— REFUSAL TO ACCEPT SHIPMENTS. 

Travis, Chairman: In this matter the Durham and South Carolina Rail- 
road Company complains that the defendant company refuses to accept from 
the plaintiff and forward two shipments of fertilizer tendered it at Bonsai, 
North Carolina, being the terminal of the Durham and South Carolina Rail- 
road Company on the line of defendant company, one of said cars being 
Southern car No. 33590, and L. Y. No. 72252. the former destined to Vass, 
North Carolina, and the latter to New Hill, North Carolina, both being sta- 
tions on the line of defendant company. 



256 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

The defendant company demands prepayment of freight on said shipments 
at the rate of $1.12 per ton to New Hill, North Carolina, and $1.62 per ton on 
the Vass shipment. There have been controversies of the same nature be- 
tween the two companies heretofore, and this Commission has ordered the 
defendant company to accept and forward the particular shipments then in 
controversy, and that has been done. 

The Commission is clearly of the opinion that the contention of the Sea- 
board Air Line Railway in respect to all of these shipments, including the 
two now under consideration, is wholly without foundation or reason, and 
that the Seaboard Air Line Railway is entitled to collect on said shipments 
no more than its local rate from Bonsai, North Carolina, to destination, less 
25 per cent : It is, therefore, 

Okdered, That the said Seaboard Air Line Railway at once accept and for- 
ward the two shipments above named at its local rate from Bonsai, North 
Carolina, to destination, less 25 per cent. 

It is further Ordered, That the said Seaboard Air Line Railway accept 
from the Durham and South Carolina Railroad Company at all times hereafter 
any and all shipments tendered it at Bonsai for delivery to stations beyond 
at the same rate, towit, at the local rate from Bonsai, North Carolina, to 
destination, less 25 per cent. — 

April 16, 1913. 



IN THE MATTER OF TELEPHONE RATES IN THE TOWN OF 
APEX, N. C. 

This is a matter coming on upon petition of the citizens of the town of 
Apex, N. C, asking this Commission to approve and authorize the rates set 
out in the proposed agreement of contract between the Bell Telephone Com- 
pany and the authorities of said town ; and it appearing to the Corporation 
Commission that the said rates are reasonable : It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the said rates be and they hereby are approved, and the pro- 
posed agreement between the said town and the said Bell Telephone Company 
is hereby authorized in so far as it is the duty or province of the Corporation 
Commission so to do. Edward L. Travis, 

May 5, 1913. Chairman.

Sanford, and other citizens along the line of the Atlantic and Yadkin division

CITIZENS OF GLEN RAVEN v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY- 
PASSENGER TRAIN SERVICE. 

Pell, Commissioner: In this case it appearing from the petition of the 
citizens of Glen Raven and from the evidence taken at the hearing, that a 
large population in this section is deprived of passenger train service, and 
also express service, which are needed badly at Glen Raven : It is 

Ordered, That the Southern Railway stop its trains Nos. 21 and 144 at the 
said Glen Raven station, and that this order go into effect within fifteen days 
from the date hereof.

TUSSEY & YOUNTS v. WINSTON-SALEM SOUTHBOUND RAILWAY 
COMPANY— SIDE-TRACK FACILITIES. 

Pell, Commissioner: It appearing from the petition in this cause and the 
evidence taken at the hearing, that there is not sufficient prospect of profitable 
business for the railway company at the point at which the side-track is 
asked for to justify the expenditure : It is 

Ordered, That the petition in this cause be dismissed. 

August 28, 1913. 



CAPE FEAR GRAVEL COMPANY TO THE COMMISSION— IN RE APPLI- 
CATION OF CAPE FEAR GRAVEL COMPANY FOR EQUITABLE 
FREIGHT RATES ON CLAY GRAVEL. 

Pell, Commissioner: This is a petition of the Cape Fear Gravel Company, 
of Lillington, N. C, for more equitable freight rates to the different points in 
the State on unwashed clay gravel. 

The claim for a lower rate than now made rests upon the idea that un- 
washed clay gravel can be hauled at a minimum risk, that it can be hauled 
in any kind of gondola equipment, and that, viewed from any phase of the 
transportation problem, it is entitled to a very low freight rate because of its 
character as a commodity. This claim of petitioner appears to be borne out 
by the evidence. The attention of the Commission is drawn to the fact that 
this commodity is only used in the building of streets and roads, and that the 
railroads of the State will indirectly be benefited by the use of it on the public 
roads of the State. For these reasons, it is 

Ordered, that the following circular be issued : 

Circular No. 193. 
Rates on Clay Gravel (Unwashed). 

From and after October 22, 1913, the following rates will apply on un- 
washed clay gravel : 

Rates Rates

IN RE SPECIAL TRAIN SERVICE BETWEEN RALEIGH UNION 
STATION AND STATE FAIR GROUNDS. 

ORDER. 

It having been made to appear to the Corporation Commission that the 
ordinary facilities of transportation to the State Fair Grounds are inadequate 
to properly serve the increasingly large number of people who attend the 
State Fair, and particularly on Wednesday and Thursday, the days of greatest 
congestion : it is 

Ordered, That the Seaboard Air Line Railway Company operate between 

the union depot in the city of Raleigh, N. C, and the State Fair Grounds on 

Wednesday, October 22, and Thursday, October 23, 1913, passenger trains to 

run approximately each half-hour from 9 a. m. to 12 m., and from 2 p. m. to 

6 p. in., on days above mentioned, for the accommodation of the public. 

By the Commission :

IN THE MATTER OF EXEMPTION FROM DOUBLE TICKET WINDOWS 
AT STATE SVILLE— EXEMPTION WITHDRAWN. 

Lee, Commissioner: In the above matter it appears that the Corporation 
Commission, on April 29, 1911, granted to the Southern Railway exemption, 
for Statesville, N. C, from requirement of chapter 41 of the Public Laws of 
1911, that double ticket windows be provided in cities and towns of more than 
2,000 inhabitants, one for sale of cash fare tickets and one for exchange of 
mileage ; such exemption having been granted agreeably to provisions of the 
said act, and upon petition of a large number of the citizens of Statesville 
that with the facilities provided at that time the additional expense of double 
windows and service was not necessary. 

A large number of the citizens of Statesville have now filed with the Cor- 
poration Commission petition requesting that the former exemption from the 
provisions of said chapter 41 of the Public Laws of 1911 be withdrawn. It 
is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the exemption granted by the Corporation Commission April 
29, 1911, from the provisions of the said act for Statesville, N. C, be with- 
drawn from and after November 15, 1913. 

October 23, 1913. 



260 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 



CITIZENS OF NORTH WILKESBORO v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY 

COMPANY. 

OKDEK. 

Pell, Commissioner: This is a petition by the citizens of North Wilkes- 
boro, asking that mixed trains Nos. 239 and 240, operated by the Southern 
Railway Company between Winston-Salem and North Wilkesboro, be changed 
to passenger trains, and that the schedules of said trains be arranged so that 
the evening train into North Wilkesboro arrive at said town not later than 
7 :50 p. m. 

After a hearing in this case, held at Winston- Salem, at which petitioners 
and respondent were represented, it appearing that No. 239 already carries 
out of Winston- Salem more passengers than the present passenger train, and 
that the changing of said train to a passenger train would greatly convenience 
the public without working any great hardship to the railway company ; and 
it appearing that the arrival of the said No. 239 at North Wilkesboro later 
than 7 :50 p. m. would deprive the citizens of their evening mail : it is, there- 
fore, 

Ordered, That said Southern Railway Company, on or before November 9, 
1913, change train No. 239 from a mixed train to a passenger train, and make 
the schedule of said train so that it leave Winston- Salem at 4 :30 p. m. and 
arrive at North Wilkesboro at 7 :45 p. m. That said Southern Railway Com- 
pany continue to operate train No. 240 as a mixed train, to leave North 
Wilkesboro at 7 o'clock a. m., and arrive at Winston-Salem at 11 :15 a. m. 
That train No. 238 be changed to leave North Wilkesboro at 4 p. m., arriving 
at Rural Hall at 6 :45 p. m., and at Winston-Salem at 7 :25 p. m. 

October 25, 1913. 



HENRY A. PAGE, Jr., v. RALEIGH, CHARLOTTE AND SOUTHERN 
RAILWAY— HANDLING COTTON AT PAGE'S SIDING. 

In the above matter it appears that Henry A. Page, Jr., has two cars loaded 
with unginned cotton at Page's side-track on the Raleigh, Charlotte and 
Southern Railway, running through his farm, the said siding being 1% miles 
from Aberdeen. These cars have been tendered to the Raleigh, Charlotte 
and Southern Railway for switching to Aberdeen, North Carolina, to be 
transferred to the Aberdeen and Rockfish Railway for transportation to 
Raeford, North Carolina, under Rule No. 30 of transfer and switching rules 
of the Commission, which provide a charge of $3 a car for switching a dis- 
tance of not more than 2 miles. 

The Raleigh, Charlotte and Southern Railway contends : 

1. That upon shipments originating at this siding it is entitled to its full 
local tariff charge for distance of 5 miles or less, and that such shipments are 
not subject to transfer and switching rules covered by Rule No. 30. 

2. That it should not be required under any circumstances to handle ship- 
ments of unginned cotton in bulk. 

The Commission has heretofore declined to require railroad companies to 
accept shipments of unginned cotton in bulk for regular transportation move- 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 261 

Hient, on account of fire hazard ; but when it appears, as in this case, that 
the railroad company that is to perform the line movement is willing, of its 
own motion, to accept and handle such shipments, the Commission finds it 
difficult to decide that it is unreasonable to require another transportation 
company to perform a merely switching movement in connection with such 
shipments. 

Opportunity has not yet been given for such thorough hearing of the par- 
ties and investigation of the contested matters involved as would be satis- 
factory to the Commission as a basis for a permanent order, but as delay in 
deciding these matters would be greatly to the inconvenience of the com- 
plainant, and as the Commission is of opinion from the facts now appearing 
that these shipments should be handled under Rule No. 30 : it is 

Ordered, That the said Raleigh, Charlotte and Southern Railway switch, 
without unnecessary delay, the two cars of unginned cotton now at Page's 
siding, and any further cars that may be tendered, until further order is 
made, for the charge of $3 per car as provided by transfer and switching 
Rule No. 30. 

By order of the Commission : A. J. Maxwell, 

November 10, 1913. Clerk. 



town of Lagrange v. Norfolk southern railroad company- 
depot ACCOMMODATIONS. 

Pell, Commissioner: This matter coming on to be heard in the town of 
LaGrange on November 11, 1913, after a conference between the citizens of 
said town and the officials of the respondent railroad, an agreement being 
reached which meets the approval of this Commission : it is 

Ordered, That the Norfolk Southern Railroad Company erect in the town 
of LaGrange, North Carolina, at a point on the south side of said company's 
railroad near the present automobile garage as agreed upon, a combination 
freight and passenger depot, to cost not less than $3,500, to be constructed 
upon plans to be approved by this Commission, which plans must be sub- 
mitted by the said railroad company to this Commission within thirty days 
from the date hereof, the said depot to be erected within ninety days after 
approval of plans. 

November 20, 1913. 



CITIZENS OF ROSE HILL v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD- 
DEPOT FACILITIES. 



Lee, Commissioner: The above matter was investigated by the Commission 
at Rose Hill Wednesday, November 12, 1913, the following facts appearing : 

The present depot at Rose Hill is inadequate, and it is impractical to en- 
large it on the present site. The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad proposed to 



262 BT. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

build a depot at a point about 800 feet north of present depot, and on same 
side as present station, and submitted plans for depot to be erected. 

Another site is offered the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad about 65 feet south 
of and across from the present station. 

The principal public road through the town crosses the railroad alongside 
of the present station, and removal of depot to the proposed location, 800 
feet north of its present site, and with only one street leading to it, would 
be less convenient both to the citizens of the town and other patrons of the 
Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad submit plans within thirty 
days from the date hereof for a new depot to be erected on the site south of 
and across the street from the present depot. 

November 21, 1913. 



IN THE MATTER OF LOCATION OF ATLANTIC COAST LINE 
RAILROAD DEPOT AT WALLACE, NORTH CAROLINA. 

ORDER. 

Lee, Commissioner: After investigation of the above matter, the following 
facts appear : 

The present depot of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad in the town of Wal- 
lace is built on the west side of its right of way, which is 65 feet wide from 
the center of the track. Business houses have been built right up to and 
alongside of the right of way, leaving only a narrow passage between these 
buildings and the depot, with result that there is considerable congestion in 
the transportation of freight to and from the depot. The present depot is 
inadequate to accommodate the business handled, but it is impossible to 
enlarge it at the present site. 

Suitable locations, ample in size for a depot site, have been tendered the 
Atlantic Coast Line Railroad : 

1. By Mrs. Ellen Boney, at a point about 600 feet north of present depot, 
and on opposite side from present location. 

2. By Mr. Paisly Boney, at a point about 65 feet south of the present depot 
location and on same side of railroad. 

Two members of the Commission inspected each of these locations in per- 
son, and heard testimony of the interested parties, and after such investiga- 
tion are of the opinion that the location south of the present depot will best 
serve the convenience of the patrons of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad at 
Wallace ; and it is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad submit plans within thirty 
days for a new depot to be constructed on the site south of present depot, 
offered by Mr. Paisley Boney. 

November 21, 1913. 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 263 

ELIZABETH CITY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE v. NORFOLK SOUTHERN 
RAILROAD COMPANY— PROPOSED LOCATION OF PASSENGER STA- 
TION. 

Travis, Chairman: This matter coming on upon petition of the Norfolk 
Southern Railroad to remove its passenger station at Elizabeth City from 
its present site to a proposed new location at or about the north end of Main 
Street, and it appearing that such removal would straighten and shorten the 
line of the company, eliminating a sharp curve, and save the time and incon- 
venience of backing into the station ; and it further appearing, after a full 
hearing of the matter at Elizabeth City, that quite a majority of the citizens 
thereof favor such removal : it is now 

Ordered, That the petition of the Norfolk Southern Railroad be allowed, 
and that it be permitted and is hereby authorized to build a good and ade- 
quate station at the proposed site on Main Street, and, when same is com- 
pleted, may remove its present depot. 

Before making this order the Norfolk Southern Railroad agreed with the 
Corporation Commission that it would restore the train locally known as the 
"Waddy" train as a local train between Norfolk and Edenton upon such 
schedule as would serve the convenience of North Carolina towns between 
those points, and that said train would be kept on as long as its earnings 
were sufficient to pay the operating expenses, and that if at any time it was 
proposed to remove this train, because of its failure to pay said operating 
expenses, the question as to whether or not it would pay such expenses should 
be first submitted to and decided by the Corporation Commission of North 
Carolina, and that the company would be governed by such decision, without 
regard to the fact that it would be an interstate train. 

December 11, 1913. 



IN RE PETITION OF CITIZENS OF MOUNT AIRY, WINSTON- 
SALEM, ETC. 

Pell, Commissioner: This matter coming on to be heard upon a petition 
of the citizens of Winston- Salem, Mount Airy, and other points, asking for a 
change in the schedule of Southern Railway train No. 132, in order to lessen 
the waiting time between connecting trains at Rural Hall, it is 

Ordered, That the Southern Railway Company change said schedule so 
that said train No. 132 shall leave Mount Airy at 3:40 p. m., connecting at 
Rural Hall with train No. 239, and arrive at Greensboro at 7 :10 p. m., leaving 
Greensboro not later than 7 :30 p. m., and arriving at Sanford not later than 
two and one-half hours thereafter. 

This order to go into effect not later than December 21, 1913.

GOOD ROADS COMMISSION OF ORANGE COUNTY v. SOUTHERN 
RAILWAY COMPANY— UNDERGRADE CROSSINGS. 

Pell, Commissioner: This cause coming on to be heard upon petition of 
the Good Roads Commission of Orange County, at Hillsboro, North Carolina, 
on November 8, 1913, where evidence was taken by the Commission, the fol- 
lowing facts are found : 

1. That the petitioner, in pursuance of a special act of the General Assem- 
bly, has relocated the main road leading from Durham toward Greensboro, 
passing through Orange County, and is engaged in grading the new portion 
of said road and regrading the old portions. 

2. That it is a public necessity that the route of the said main road be 
changed so that it cross the North Carolina Railroad, now leased to the 
Southern Railway Company, at a point designated as M. P. H-44 x 4,324 feet, 
known as the Tray horn crossing, and that it cross the branch line of said 
road leading to Chapel Hill at a point designated as M. P. J-0 x 1,340 feet, 
both points being near University station. 

3. That there is at present a narrow underpass through which the said 
main road runs under the said North Carolina Railroad at a point designated 
as M. P. H-40-S, a short space west of the depot at Hillsboro, but that said 
underpass is not sufficiently wide for a properly graded main county road, 
and should be 26 feet wide; that the present survey and location of the new 
main road carries said road under the said railroad at the same underpass, 
and it is desirable that said main road remain where it is. 

It appears to the Commission that the North Carolina Railroad having 
already excavated and constructed an underpass at the point M. P. H-40-8, it 
ought not to bear the burden of a widening of said underpass equally with 
the county ; nor should it bear an equal burden with the county in the con- 
struction of the underpass at the point M. P. J-0 x 1,340 feet, the construction 
of this underpass appearing to be necessary only upon making the new 
location of the county road which of itself appears only to be made to relieve 
the county of expensive grading. It is, therefore, 

Okdered, That the petitioner, the Good Roads Commission of Orange 
County, be required to lower their said main highway from Durham to 
Greensboro at the three points above stated where it is to cross the said 
North Carolina Railroad and its branch line to Chapel Hill ; that the South- 
ern Railway, jointly with said Good Roads Commission, shall construct three 
proper underpasses or undergrade trestles at the points designated, each to 
be 26 feet wide, and that the cost of such construction be apportioned as fol- 
lows : 

In the construction of the said undergrade trestle at the point designated 
as M. P. H-44 x 4,324 feet, the county of Orange through its Good Roads Com- 
mission shall bear half of the expense, and the Southern Railway Company, 
lessee of the North Carolina Railroad, shall bear half. 

In the construction of the undergrade trestle at the point designated as 
M. P. J-0 x 1,340 feet, the county of Orange, through its Good Roads Commis- 
sion, shall bear two-thirds, and the Southern Railway Company, lessee of the 
North Carolina Railroad, one-third.
